Ok, virtual monopoly money for whomever can solve this problem. It’s driving me absolutely nuts:
I’m running Windows XP SP1, all patches applied. IBM Thinkpad A31.
My user name is the administrator (only one). I’m logged in as administrator. When installing any driver update, it prompts, as usual for the location of the driver. I enter the driver location, the driver does the installation procedure, as typical. On the very end, I’m informed by my wonderful OS that it failed because of “Permission Denied”. No more information is known. The driver is located in C:\Drivers (which is where IBM places all drivers prior to installation, and has worked historically).
This happens for all devices.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to notify me of the cause, and most importantly how to remedy this annoying issue.
Needless to say, I’m a bit pissed. My Macs don’t do this BS. They work.
