I can not install the Primus

#1 Post by kittysoman » 2020.05.29 02:12

Hi~ I'm a beginner of SAXS experiment.

I was tried to install the ATSAS package Win7 3.0 version several times,
but while installing the program, the error message was showen continuously.

Error opening file for writing:


Click Abort to stop the installation, Retry to try again, or Ignore the skip this file.

I was tried uninstall the program and re-restalled but same problem was occured.

I don' know how to solve this problem.

I need expert's advice.

Try installing to a folder where you have write rights

It looks like you don't have administrative rights to install programs to C:/atsas/. If you are installing the latest version 3.0.1 it should suggest to install ATSAS to C:\Program Files (x86). If that doesn't work, please try installing to your 'My Documents' folder, something like C:\Users\yourusername\Documents\atsas. Please refer to the ATSAS installation manual for details.
