Installation Error of FileZilla 3.5.3 on 64-bit Windows 7 Professional

I am logged on as a system administrator on my computer running on 64-bit Windows 7 Professional when I encountered an error while installing FileZilla.

I ran the setup file FileZilla_3.5.3_win32-setup.exe, and when it asked if I will be running the program as the current user or as Administrator, I chose current user. I clicked the Next button all throughout the installation process, but it's when the error appeared:

Error opening file for writing: C:Program Files (x86) FileZilla FTP Client  filezilla.exe Click Abort to stop the installation, Retry to try again, or Ignore to skip this file
FileZilla Client 3.5.3 Setup
 
Error opening file for writing: 
 
C:Program Files (x86) FileZilla FTP Client filezilla.exe
 
Click Abort to stop the installation, 
Retry to try again, or 
Ignore to skip this file.
 
I tried to click on retry and ignore button but won’t work so I end up cancelling the installation.
 
What am I doing wrong?
 
Can anyone please help me install FileZilla?

Hi,

I will help you to solve your problem. The FileZilla software you are trying to install is an x86 or 32 bit software. Download and try x64 or 64 bit version from FileZilla website. This time installs as Administrator. It should install smoothly. 32 bits is not recommended for 64 bit system.

Have you ever tried to run it as Administrator? Filezilla should work properly and is supported by different platforms such as Windows, Linux and Mac regardless if it is 32 or 64 Bit. As an alternative solution, try downloading the latest version of FileZilla and run it as Administrator. Hope this once helps.
