It'll also happen when your account doesn't have write access to the drive or directory the TEMP variable references.

Then, that's the problem.  The TEMP variable is set incorrectly on your machine. It must point at a directory that actually exists, has read/write priveleges, and has plenty of free space.

Set the TEMP environment correctly to a directory that really exists.

If you're using Windows 95 or 98, do that in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

If you're using Windows NT, do that in the "System" applet in Control Panel.
