Can't Install on program files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I was trying to install K-5 Video Reversal Tool which used to work great on my previous laptop. I run Win7 32 bit. but now it seems impossible to install lots of programs into the program files.

    The dialog box shows: Error opening file for writing

    C:\Program Files\K-5 Video Reversal tool\Combined-Community-Codec-Pack 2010-10-10.exe

    I dont think the problem comes from the installation pack coz i have the one i used to install previously and i also have downloaded a new one, but both give the same result. Can anyone help?? Greatly appreciated

    P.S. K-5 is a great tool if any of you have been searching for one click and done reversing tool for video files ;) That's why i need it seriously

  • Sounds like a user permissions issue.

    Have you tried using Run As Administrator when you reun the installer?

    Right-click on the install file, select Run as Administrator from the context menu.

  • Hello,

    try running it using an elevated prompt like pvdg42 already suggested. You can also try to disable UAC.

    If this does not help, run chkdsk /r /f and install System Update Readiness tool for your OS.

  • Well, that didn't take long --  run as admin trick worked!  Installed and up and running now.  About to try it out.  Thanks, pvdg42!!

  • Obviously a rookie. Now I can't get it to work. Even followed dev's advice here:http://oakdome.com/k5/video-reversal-tool/K-5-video-reversal-tool.php and converted the MOV file to WMV - still no luck.  No errors, but when completed - it says it has completed - I can't find the file anywhere on my system, despite valid search effort.  Any advice?  Thanks in advance.
