Windows 7: Opera Installation Problem

18 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7000 x64
Opera Installation Problem

I keep getting the below error when trying to install Opera. I get the same error when I try to install Visual Studio 2008, Virtual PC or Sun Xvm. The error message doensn't tell me much and I was wondering if anyone has the similar problems when installing any of these applications.

vista x64/ win 7 x64

is a question of the apps not being able to write to the installdirectory.
For myself i take ownership of Users and the Program Piles folders and give myself full rights.
You might also try to install as Administrator
