    Hi people, I'm new on this forum and I'm having a little problem when I try to install a new application, the DAZ 3D.

    I can't install because Windows 7 shows me this message:

    "There has been an error.
    Error creating directory
    C:/Users/?Wagner/AppData/Roaming/DAZ 3D"

    Something (not me) is putting a question mark (?) before my username.

    Anyone could help me?

    Thanks

    Hello wagbr,

    Welcome to Windows 7 Forums!

    First, try to run the installer with administrator privileges. This may explain the error, but not the question mark. Secondly, try running the executable in Compatibility Mode by right clicking it then selecting Properties..., then go to the Compatibility tab. Try some of the options there, as some installers break between the XP/Vista/7 transition.
