Trouble Instauling a Prigram

I am trying to install Acrobat 7. I get an "ERROR 1303" telling me about
lack of priviages so on. It said I need to be administrator in order to
install to a particular file. I am set as administrator, it is my home
computer.

I went to Abode's support page and it told me how to go into "cmd" and
manually assign full access. I did this but I get the same error. I am
using XP home.

Any suggestions.

Hi Ian

How are you attempting to install the Reader? Have you downloaded the
setup file called "AdbeRdr70_enu.exe", or are you using Adobe's Download
Manager?

Are you sure you downloaded the right version?

Where are you trying to install it to?

It is Acrobat 7 Pro. I clicking on the setup launcher ( version
6.6.2488.0) and it starts to install it but stops part way through, with
the "error 1303". I am installing to the main C drive, in it's own folder

You need to look at the permissions for the folder.

In XP Pro, this would as simple as a right-click, but in XP Home, I
believe you need to boot into Safe Mode and log in as the system
administrator.

Once there, make sure the Administrators and SYSTEM groups have full
control over the destination folder.
