          In the cases we have found so far there are 2 possibilities:

          1. You must have administrator privileges to install Flex Builder. Apologies if that isn't clear in the installation guide. The installer needs to have write permission in the installation directory, usually c:\program files. There are also installations into c:\windows directories.

          2. You have a corrupted installation file. The file on our servers is OK, we've verified it but sometimes, and this happened to me, too, the download gets corrupted. Try and download a new copy.

              First verify that this user account does have admin privileges. It is possible that it does not.

              Then do the install again, but this time write down the exact error message and on which step the problem happens. Then post that information here.
