Windows 7: How I Solved Error 2203

[QUOTE=a9fc;565101](For Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Should be the same for other versions)

Well, I checked and full control was given to 'SYSTEM' in the installer folder, but the problem was fixed after I gave 'SYSTEM' permissions for the C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Temp

[I didn't do something right with the quote.]

Thank you, so much!! I had been going crazy trying to get the latest version of Java to install. I searched for Java-specific information, but none of the suggested fixes worked. Then I found this thread. The Installer folder already had SYSTEM having full control. The temp folder did not. I added SYSTEM and then gave it full control. Once that was done, the install worked perfectly. Thank you, again!

Guys, let me say one thing... I just went out of my mind with this issue but it ended up being that I had to disable anti-virus (Kaspersky). Same error 2203. It was 100% just an antivirus issue. Just a heads up for people to check/disable your antivirus before trying to install office.

Thanks for this fix it worked for me

As of a week ago I could not upgrade Skype, ITunes and could not uninstall Winzip18

After adding System to the properties of C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Temp I was able to upgrade

It amazes me that after you identified this fix 4 years ago that Microsoft permits the removal of system from it properties of this folder. I ran the fixit program prior and it did not resolve this issue

Thank you again for your resolution of the error 2203 problem

I had to make an account to reply to this thread but um....
I did everything right, as far as I know. At first I couldn't find the Windows Installer folder, but then it showed up suddenly(which was weird) and so I did what needed to be done but I'm still getting the error!
It's very frustrating, I'm following all the steps correctly on installing the game and did this now but it's still not working....

This Works Also

I would recommend a little app called Take Ownership. It makes it easy to click and change the permissions with one click. I struggled with the 2302 error on a brand new install of Win 7 Ultimate. Adobe and some other applications would not install. Going to the locations mentioned in the first post (after un-hiding operating system files in Tools-Folder Options-View) the mentioned folders were visible.

I have the permissions enabled though. I triple checked and more. All my files have been un-hidden for over a year now too, so that's not a problem. As far as I know, I did everything right and all the permissions have been given but I'm still getting the error, which is the problem. I've been following the wiki word by word too so I have no idea what else it could be

If you use Take Ownership, you can remedy the install errors one by one, if necessary. I used it to install Adobe Reader and it took 8 individual clicks to finally get all the pesky sub folders permission.

Is it possible for you to link me to this software/app? I did a search for "Take Ownership app" and I'm not finding anything....

I'm new to this forum and if this violates any rules, please take down the post. Apologies.

Add "Take Ownership" to Explorer Right-Click Menu in Win 7, 8 or Vista
