Windows 10: Error writing to file when installing software
Error writing to file when installing software
I am trying to install Macrium reflect. It gets part way through the install process before an error dialog pops up
Error writing to file: C:\Program Files\Macrium|Reflect\Reflect.exe
I have tried running the installer as Administrator
I have tried going to C: drive security and giving myself full access to eveything
I have tried to access the Administrator account by going to a command prompt and typing net user administrator /active:yes . I get System Error 5 Access denied
None of these things work
As a side note, I have had a gutsful of Windows 10 always asking me for Admin permissions to do routine stuff like installing software and running exe files. I installed this OS on MY computer, so I ought to have unlimited and unrestricted Administrator access to do anything I like. Why is this not happening?
NOTE: My account information says "Local Account Administrator". Go figure!!
Giving your self full rights won't help as it's an install so it's running as a system install and it's system not you that needs rights. Have you checked the drive for errors as that would also give the error if there is a. Fault
OK, I tried installing Macrium in Drive D: (a separate physical HDD). That worked fine
I uninstalled it, and ran CHKDSK C:. No errors were found
I tried reinstalling in Drive C:\Program Files\Macrium\Reflect- failed with the same error.
Then I tried installing it in C:\Macrium\Reflect - and it worked
It seems I cannot install programs in the Program Files folder
Is there any way to know what software Security and Maintenance is referencing when it shows this message?: 'Finish installing device software'
