Windows 7: Access to System32 Folder

Access to System32 Folder


I'm trying to install Janus Components on Windows 7. The install crashes, giving me the message that "C:\Windows\system32\msvbvm60.dll" could not be opened. Please check that your disk is not full and that you have access to the destination directory"

I've logged in as administrator, run the install app as administrator and tried everything I could think of, to no avail!

Can anybody help please??

If the above fails you can try this
Take Ownership Shortcut

Make sure you can see hidden folders (control panel>change view to small icons>folder options>view>click see hidden folders)

Go to local disk> program files (or program files x86) Using the above application right click and take ownership.
