Can't install Recuva
Posted 12 March 2009 - 10:39 AM
I'm trying to install Recuva 1.24 on a Vista Home Premium x64 system. I'm attempting to install it to my C:/Utilities folder, and I get the following message:
Error opening file for writing:
Click Abort to stop the installation
Retry to try again, or
Ignore and skip this file.
If I select "Ignore", I get the same message for every part of the program that gets installed. I'm running the installer as an administrator... Can someone help me out?

Probably worth a try. I can't think of a reason why installing in a non default location would cause any problem, so let us know if you've tried a fresh Installer.
If Recuva has partly installed, you probably need to try and uninstall it or delete the installed folders and files.
Hope that helps.

You can also use the portable version of Recuva. Since it doesn't need to be installed just unzip the file in your chosen directory and run it. That's it.
I downloaded another copy of the installer; still no go. The reason I was installing it to C:\Utilities was because I had the same error when installing to the default directory, so I thought it didn't like the program files folder. I'll try your suggestion.
