Windows 7: Why can't i install anything? [says full disk, it's not]

Why can't i install anything? [says full disk, it's not]

As stated in the title of this thread, i cannot install anything. I get (most of the time) an error of "1711 not enough disk space", or something along those lines. other times it doesn't include the number it just tells me there's not enough space. I've changed the temp folder to my HDD and tried installing to that, I've tried deleting all of my MSIxxx.tmp files, I've also tried restarting my computer. it seems nothing is working and i will have to quit life. help would be greatly appreciated, even if you think I've already tried it
thanks,
s00p

Did you check to which partition it actually tries to install. And if you could post a picture of your disk management, that would help.

And what is the path to where the installer tries to put the program files - watch that closely during the installation attempts.

That does not tell us very much. Check all partitions - especially the small ones - whether there are any stray 'Program Files'.

I made a partition for a hackentosh drive and never got around to it. This was on it.. it says this, as follows, when i try to delete it.



EDIT: i formatted this partition, and it did not fix it.

Also do the following:

press Start
type regedit and press Enter
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
in the right pane, double click on ProgramFilesDir - there are 2
what is the path there ??

I don't think this Hackintosh stuff helps. What does the regkey say.

Btw: I have only 40% vision and a very hard time to read your snips. Is black writing on white backhround possible.

Well, I set the default to be my F:\ drive, because someone told me that might fix it. Nothing changed.

P.S. I just successfully installed VLC to my F:\ drive, but i still can't install hamachi and my sound card drivers or java.
