problem installing personal environment: error opening file for writing

My collegue is having problem installing the personal environment 9: Error opening file for writing
(has enough space left and is an administrator on his computer)

please help him.

Hi Linda,

I may be interpreting this wrong, but there seems to be some confusion regarding what your colleague is trying to do. In order to use the Personal Environment, you need to download the Development Environment, register yourself in the community and create your personal environment.

Afterwards, you simply need to open the development environment and connect to the previously created personal environment.

From the image you sent, it seems that you are installing the Platform Server, which you do not need for this particular case.

Should you still have any issues, or if I'm wrong in my assumption, do not hesitate do ask.

Thank you Ricardo, I will check with my colleague!
Dear Ricardo,

You were correct. He is now downloading the development environment with filename DevelopmentEnvironment-’. However, he still receives an error: 'error opening file for writing'. (see attachment).

Could you please help us again?.

Thank you in advance.
Hi Linda,

The Development Environment installer must be run as administrator. Have you tried running it as so (right-click, run as administrator)? That may be what's causing the problem. Can you please try this?

Let me know how it.
