failed to create $mad$file1$

Post by cha497 »

MadColleaction.exe installer failed to create temp folder $mad$file1$ but is able to create the temp folder $mad$dir$ under the user profile. Any help would be appreciated how this can be fixed.

That seems very weird, I've never seen this problem reported before. Can you please double check the NTFS rights of the "AppData\Local\Temp" folder? Does it allow "full access" for the current user? And I assume you're running the installer under the user account of this user?

Yes, I have full control on the folder "AppData\Local\Temp". I can created the folder $mad$file1$ manually. Only the installer is not able to create that folder.

When you say "I" in this case that means your current user. But that isn't necessarily the same user which the installer it running under. Hence the questions in my previous comment.
