1152: Error Extracting to the temporary location

Hi,

I am attempting to install a 64-bit application on a windows 7 pro, SP 1 64-bit OS.

I am logged in as computer administrator. Also, my profile is domain admin.

When I right click and select 'run as administrator,', I get the following error:
1152: Error Extracting to the temporary location

When double click on the exe file, then click on 'run,' I get the same error.

I have run 'disk cleanup' and have plenty of HDD space.

Word file with error message screenshot is attached.

I have installed from the same executable file on other machines, while logged as those machines' respective user.

Please help.

Thanks,

Haresh

Hi,
Go to the search/run box and type
%TMP% [press enter]
It will take you to the temp directory (users\username\AppData\Local\Temp). First delete anything you can in it, secondly, move up one level (users\username\AppData\Local), right click on the Temp folder and check the securoty settings. Make sure you have adequate rights, adjust them if needed.

Step 1: Perform a Disk Cleanup on the Computer.

    Click Windows Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System tools -> Disk Cleanup.
    Allow scan to finish.
    Check/Select all listed items to clear. (Especially Temporary files)
    Click Ok.
    Click Delete Files.
        Allow Process to finish before continuing with the software install.


Step 2: Run the software setup.exe again.

If the issue is not resolved by step 1, do the following or contact your IT Department to verify your network permissions:

    Click Windows Start Menu.
        Windows XP - Click Run
        Windows Vista/7 - In the Search programs and files type, Run and click Run at the top of the menu.
    In the Run box, type %temp%
    Click Ok. This will open your Temporary Files folder.
    Select ALL or highlight files/folders listed.
    Click Delete on keyboard.
        It is ok to delete all these files and folders, due to they are only temp files.
        Some files/folder may not delete, you will get a prompt The action cannot be completed because the files are open in …, just click Cancel. This is ok that you can't delete all the files/folders.
Which is the User's temp folder set to? Run SET and have a look at the variables.
Is this a self made program or third party? If it is third party, what's the name and version?

Thanks all,

The temp folder seems fine. I have full control over it. Already ran disk cleanup and no improvement.

This is a thrid party program called Jet Reports version 2012 R 2.

It seems that there is an issue with my user profile and not the program. I logged in as the local administrator and it installed. Is there a way to fix a corrupt uer profile? If not, I may just have to delete and recreate my profile.
