JSI Tip 3803. Internal error: 2755.1632,c:\winnt\system32\adminpak.msi?

When you try to install the Windows 2000 Administrator Package, you receive:

Internal error: 2755.1632,c:\winnt\system32\adminpak.msi.

Even though the shortcuts may appear, they don't work, generating:

Temporary Directory is not found or there is not enough disk space.

You may have the same problem with other .MSI packages?

These symptoms indicate that the NTFS permissions for the Administrators group, or for the System account, have been removed from the %SystemRoot%\Installer folder.

To fix the problem:

1. Open a CMD prompt and type:

attrib -r -h -s %SystemRoot%\Installer /S /D

2. In Explorer, open the Properties of the %SystemRoot%\Installer folder.

3. On the Security tab, set the following permissions:

Administrators group         - Full Control
Everyone group               - Read and Execute, List Folder Contents, and Read
System account               - Full Control
4. On the Advanced tab, check the Reset permissions .... box.

5. Install the Adminpak.msi package.
