I've bought a game (Crysis WarHead) and i don't have permission to copy a file to my pc.
It appears an error that i can't acess the file on DVD when i'm installing it.
I ask to change the DVD, but the place where i've bought says it works with them.
Does anybody have an ideia what can it be??
Try copying the DVD to a folder on the hard drive and then installing from there. This is normally faster than installing directly from the DVD anyways, because the DVD drive doesn't end up spinning up and down as much.
If you get the same error just copying to the hard drive, it is a problem with the DVD. You can try to clean it or buff out small scratches with a soft cloth & windex. Some drives are more finicky about reading scratched DVDs than others. But first, give this application a try: Unstoppable Copier
I'm having the same problem with the Sandbox2 installer for Crysis. I never installed it with the game so I'm trying to install it separately and it keeps saying I don't have access to the files. I've tried and tried changing the permissions for the user accounts, installers, etc. but they never seem to save the settings or I can't edit the permissions for the group for some reason.
Microsoft really needs to just go straight back to Windows XP permissions, that was a lot simpler, either you do or don't have permission.
