    Hi,
    I'm trying to install a game, and it's in msi format. I get through most of the installation, then it shows up with this-
    c:\users\nova\appdata\roaming\pokemon trading card game online\pokemontradingcardgameonline\pokemon trading card game online_data\level14. Verify that you have access to that directory.
    If anyone could help, that'd be awesome.
    I am running windows 7 x32 I believe.

    The way I would attempt to solve this problem is to run a Command Prompt as Administrator, and then invoke the .msi file from the command line.

    For instance:
    Code:
    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
    Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.
    
    C:\Users\Josephur>cd Downloads
    
    C:\Users\Josephur\Downloads>dir *.msi
    Volume in drive C is System
    Volume Serial Number is E081-FFD7
    
    Directory of C:\Users\Josephur\Downloads
