A few programs that I've attempted to install die half way through throwing the error that I have insufficient privileges to access C:\ProgramData\..... When I try to take ownership of the folder in question I am unable to. My user profile gives me administrator privileges. If I right click the installer and click run as administrator this doesn't improve the situation. What am I doing wrong?
I can't seem install some programs. Solved.ProgramData; privileges

Eventually the folders have the wrong permissions...

It looks as though this has done the trick. I've not been having problems with installs since. Thanks.
BTW that's a nice little program.

I would have posted back earlier but I don't do many program installations and I needed to be reasonably sure the problem was solved.
