Insufficient privileges to install

Post by andu77 on Sat 07 Mar 2015, 01:20

Hi whilst trying to install Sims 4 I get the following message:- The installer has insufficient priviliges to access this directory: C:- Programdata-Microsoft-Windows-Startmenu- The Sims 4.  The installation cannot continue.  Log on as an administrator or contact your system administrator.  

Thing is I am logged on as administrator and also I am the only user on the laptop

Regards

Hello andu77 and welcome,

Look at this guide, and then navigate to the folder that is mentioned in your error message (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\). And edit the permissions of the folder(s) as shown in my guide.

Note that in this picture here:






At the top under "Group or user names", there should be the name of the account that you use to log in. If there are any other accounts too, besides the one that you use, you must repeat the procedure for these other accounts then ! Take your time to do it carefully, and then we'll see what happens. Good luck !


P.S. did you use WinRAR for extracting the contents of the .RAR, of The Sims 4 ?
