Hi X-perts,

Installshield installation returns an error 1152 erro extracting to

C:\Users\usname\AppData\Local\Temp

This means that temp directory is not writable. I've tried to remove the read-only property for Temp, but it comes back (as read-only) all the time.

how can I fix this?

thanks!

You need to take ownership of the directory.
Replace previous owner with yourself.
Also try disabling UAC for the time being...

It doesn't matter if you're the owner. Please check the NTFS permissions (Security tab) on the folder. Grant users - modify permissions and try again.
