I located a similar thread to this, but it was of no use. So, I am trying you guys.
I use Win 7 and log in as admin.
Firstly, I uninstalled the older version of the program. When opening FileZilla_3.5.3_win32-setup.exe, I was questioned if I wanted to run as administrator, which I clicked 'yes'. However, the action was rejected - "because of user account limitation. possible reasons: missing passwords are not allowed, limitation of access time, limitation of rules." (This can be seen in the screenshots.):
I then retried it using "current user". I accepted the relevant agreements and started the installation. I kept clicking the next step button until it asked me where to install it to which, I indicated "Folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\FileZilla FTP Client". Then this popup appeared:
"Error opening file for writing: C:/Program Files (x86)/ Filezilla FTP Client / filezilla.exe
click abort to stop installation , retry to try agin, ignore to skip this file".
I had to cancel the install because ignoring the problem or switching user didn’t change the outcome.
I have looked at similar threads and tried all the hints and tips that seem related to this with no joy and now I am running out of ideas.
I hope there is no compatibility issues with my system. In the filename, it says win32, but I use x64. If this is the cause, where can I get the right file and if it isn’t, can you suggest to me what I can do to solve this annoying problem. Thanks in advance!
