    Installation failure - access permissions denied, but I'm administrator

    Shepess

      I've been trying for ages to install the latest Adobe Reader 9.1 with the same result:

       

      Error 1303. The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory C:\ProgrammeData\Adobe. The installation cannot continue.  Log on as an administrator or contact your system administrator. [Retry]  [Cancel]

       

      Retry returns the same error message ad infinitum, and cancel aborts the installation completely.

       

      I'm using a laptop running Vista Home Premium, and am the only user / administrator with full permission over the whole system.

       

      Can someone please offer me a solution?
