    I am getting this error, at first I thought it was only one program but its anything I try to install.

    Just happened within the last couple hours. Cause about 2 or 3 hours ago I installed an update to the Cheat Happens Trainer Manager.

    Any ideas? (Windows 7 64bit)

    *edit most programs give me the first error, but another app gives me this one.

    Hmm try right clicking and running as administrator?
    Also open up that folder while the installer is running and see what it is trying to do.

    I tried admin an no change, and it shouldn't matter, it suddenly changed, installing anything was working a couple hours ago, now nothing can be installed.

    And what do you mean? Go to the temp folder? I checked that folder, no issues there.

    If you have UAC off, try turning it on, had weird issues sometimes with older apps around that folder.

    Did not seem to help.

    I just looked and I have a folder called AppData as well as Application Data, AppData I can access just fine, I try clicking on Application Data and says I do not have access (no options in properties to change either). Now I have tried to install 7 different programs, all giving errors. I just installed utorrent update, and it worked.

    Does different programs use different temp folders? What is wrong with the Application Data folder?

    Some folders are really just there as a legacy thing and just redirect to the new path.

    Type %appdata% in the start menu to get to it, then move up a folder. Temp is using in local..

    Right click on the folder and select take ownership. That is one of the biggest annoyances of windows7. I don't like the permission sequence at all.

    There is no Take Ownership option, I don't have UAC enabled.

    Why does the weirdest things happen to me, nothing changed lol

    So I deleted all the files I downloaded to install. They were all from Filehippo. Never had issues before, and these downloaded without issue this time as well. They were full size and everything.

    But I re-downloaded them, and all worked like they should. So that was weird? lol

    What build of Windows 7 is this? I recall that an earlier build had some kind of similar bug.

    There is no take ownership in the right click menu? That is odd.

    Hmmmm...I seem to also remember that the problem only affected 32-bit; oh well.

    I didn't read your previous message that indicated that it seems you solved the problem. Strange, indeed!
