VB6 Deployment package will not create directory on NT workstation

I just created a VB app to change a pc's IP address, gateway and subnet mask.  All works fine on my XP development pc.
I created the deployment package and am trying to load it to an NT 4 (service pack 6) workstation.  The message I get is from Setup which says "Could not create directory".  The options are retry and cancel.  
I have manually created a directory and browsed to it to deploy.  When the path is selected, I still get a message telling me that it can't create the directory.  
I have prepared 2 different package and deployment cd's on the event that something was corrupt.
Any Ideas??????????????

The only thing that I can think of is that you may not have the Admin rights to install an application in this NT station.

I would suggest you to stop using PDW and shift to an extremely powerful yet free and easy installer named Innosetup available at www.innosetup.com

Spend some time reading FAQ's at the site and download other very useful yet free 3rd party tools along with Inno. IsTool & Inno Script are must have 3rd party tools with Inno if you ask me.

They have a wonderful forum of their own. In case you face any issue with it, you can search it and you will get an answer. I have been using Inno for last 5 years now in all my professional projects and never thought of using any other installer.
