Unable to setup Wireshark in my Windows 8

Asked By 80 points N/A Posted on -

Hello Whiz,

The Wireshark download was good but the problem started when I try to setup. I started getting error message and I cannot install it. Error message gives me three options but nothing seems to fix the problem. Then I tried again after sometime but the error is not fixed. I have Windows 8 operating system 32 bit and 250 GB hard disk. Please help me to install. Thanks.

Error opening file for writing

C:Program FilesWiresharkunistall.exe

Click Abort to stop the installation,

Retry to try again, or

Ignore to skip this file.

Such error usually generates when there is some data reading/writing issue with the file. Windows 7 has made such option hard for programs by using administrative privilege. It prevents unauthorized programs from accessing any disk file that might make it corrupted or other destruction.

In order to fix this issue, exit the installer, right-click on it and select “Run as administrator”. This will provide the installer necessary permission for accessing the file.

Also, if that doesn’t solve your issue, you have to use another copy of the setup. Sometimes, setup might become corrupted so it contains broken files. When the setup runs, it generates such issue. Download WireShark.
