Error Installing

Postby Soulx » October 25th, 2010, 2:31 am

I'm having trouble installing vassal. When I open the installation wizzard and try to install, I get a message saying it has an error opening a file for writing. C:/Program Files/VASSAL/VASSAL.exe.Retrying it does nothing, and if I ignore it just takes me to the next file here it still get the same error message. Does anyone know why this is? Thanks in advance for any help.

My first guess would be that you don't have access privileges for the
"Program Files" directory, and so the installer can't create the
VASSAL folder there. Do you have Administrator privileges on the
machine you are trying to install on?
