Question:

During the installation, I receive the following error message. What can I do to fix this problem?
Error 1310. Error writing to file:.....
.. Verify that you have access to that directory.

Answer:

This may occur while trying to install the product through the system account which doesn’t have full permission to all the required files /folders on the machine. Also occur if the Windows Installer becomes unregistered during the installation process.
Steps to overcome this issue:
Log on to your machine as an Administrator – using the administrator user name and password (not as a user that is part of the local Admin group or a user that is part of the domain Admin group).
[In Windows 7 machine right click over the installer and select “Run as Administrator” from the context menu that pops up, follow the default step in the Installation wizard.]

If you still run in to any problem, reinstall after re-registering the Windows Installer. To re-register, please try the following.
1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type msiexec /unreg, and then press ENTER.
3. Click Start, and then click Run.
4. In the Open box, type msiexec /regserver, and then press ENTER.
