I downloaded the new installer this mornng; however, when clicking on the setup.exe, I received the following error message: "C:\path\to\setup.exe: Access to the specified device, path, or file is denied." Now, I'm unable to delete the OOo_1.1rc_WindowsIntel_install directory (or any of its contents) from my computer; can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks for your help, - sidesh0w

And when i want to delete the directory with the installation files i get: "can't delete f0_001: access is denied. the source file may be in use." it seems every file in that directory has access denied. Very weird.

It looks like there were some weird security settings established on the file (right-click on folder, then "Properties", "Security"). I went in, saw that some weird ownership had been attributed to users ID'd with some weird character strings (e.g., "S10982S-A99..."). Once I restored ownership to my admin account, I was able to delete them successfully.

When I tried to unzip the compressed folder I get a 'folder contains no files' error with the windows unzip program and 'file is not supported format' with 7-Zip. I'm using Xp Home Edition Service Pack 1. As I dial up at 28k any advice would be appreciated before I try again

If you are running win2k and you are having permissions issues, log in as a local (or domain) admin, then go to the security section, you should have an option of "take ownership".

This should change the ownership to the admin, and you can then change the permissions and hoepfully delete them (or re-assign them).

Remove the permissions under the advanced button on the Security tab 4. Grant "Everyone" full access to the install folder and all files. 5. Install or delete to your hearts content.

You are most likely using "simple" security settings (even though, when using normal I don't remember any thing about ownership...).

Try going to the foulder view section (using linux, can't give you a walk through I am afraid), then go down to the bottom of the long list of tick boxes radio buttons, and you should see some thing about Simpe Foulder permissions (or some thing along those lines).

Once you have ticked or unticked taht (you don't want to use them), go back and have a look at the permissions, you should then see people, that you can alter.

yes, thanks, that was a good tip. it is true i worked with the simple security-settings. i even didn't know that there were "advanced" settings. i changed the settings and found all the dialogues, mentioned here. with a bit fiddling i was able to delete the folders, after taking ownership.

funny thing is, that i wasn't able to instal oo, when i unzipped the setup-files to my hardrive first. but when i installed the software directly from within winrar, i could install 00 without a problem.
