Windows XP Professional help
I recently builr a new rig from the ground up.
Though the system seems to run smoothly I am unable to install games (COD2, Doom3, FarCry, etc..)
When I attempt to install them the Install Wizard starts up, collects pertinent data then come to a grinding halt when it attempts to create the file folders (i.e. C:\Program files\Activision)
The error returned is: 1317. An error ocurred while attempting to create the directory C:\Program Files\Activision
I also attempted to install some Nvidia drivers for the Mobo but was denied access.
The OS (XP Pro) is brand new and is legit, puchased at PC Club
I am the only user (administrator) and there is only one account.
Any pointers, or suggestions. I already spent over an hour on the phone with support to no avail, they are supposed to call back tomorrow...
I also re-loaded the OS as a re-install/repair (not via the Recovery Console)
Thanks for helping with this headache.
