Visual Studio 2005 System Error 1317

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hey guys,

I'm having trouble with the installation of Visual Studio 2005. The installation was doing fine until it reached around 30%. This error suddenly showed up.
SPSS 16.0 for Windows Installer Information
Error 1317. An error occurred while attempting to
create the directory C:ProgramDataApplication DataSPSS

I tried to fix it by uninstalling and re-installing the program. This time it got to reach 60%, but the error appeared again.

The error 1317 is basically due to lack of correct permissions by a system account on a certain drive. Solved by, 
Click run and type a command, 'compmgmt.msc', and press enter, in the computer management dialog box, expand 'storage' and click 'disk management'.
Right click on the disk drive where you want to install the program, click 'properties'. In the properties dialog box click on 'security' and then 'advanced'.
In the advanced dialog box, click 'permissions', then 'system' and finally 'edit'. Select 'allow' and click OK. Go to the advanced security settings for local disk dialog box and click 'apply' and then ok. You can go on and install visual studio 2005.
Alternatively, you can download a 'repair tool' to scan and repair the error 1317.
