I am trying to install National Instruments software in my computer, but when I execute the installer, I get Unable to execute file in the temporary directory. Error 5: Access is Denied, saying that the Setup was Unsuccessful.
Some installers come in the form of self-extracting executables (.exe) files, and others as compressed folders (.zip).
This message appears because the file for your software or IVI driver cannot obtain permission to open. It comes from the Windows Operating System, which restricts access to certain directories and applications.
