I'am trying to download the free download manager from FDM.  I have windows 7 home premium 64-bit, and I have used that manager long ago and liked it, so I will give this a try .  If anyone can tell me why it says set-up unable to create directory "c:\Program Files{x86}\FreeDownloadManager".   Then below:    ERROR5:access is denied.  Thank-you

Is it compatible with Windows 7? Plenty of old programs are not compatible with Windows 7.

yes, it says it in the system requirements. I wanted to try and figure why it won't work instead of just going somewhere else. I'am trying to understand how the computer works a little deeper, so I thank you upfront for your time, although, this is more about educating me than it is a neccessary piece of software. I can't think of any more helpful descriptions of the action, so I will leave it at that for now.

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.  I just downloaded the FDM download manager from Filehippo and installed it without any problem, so we know it isn't a compatibility issue.

 

There is an article at the Microsoft Support website which sheds some light on the ERROR5:access is denied.

  I hope I'am doing this right on the way I have responded.  Now, back to my situation.  I can not restore due to the fact it is my administrator,s account that I can,t open in order to give permission for the activity. Therefore, no new restore point means no new password.

     Thanks, but that just won,t work for me.  I really hope perhaps there is some other way besides forking out cash for more disks.

Hi, Just guessing but are you right clicking on the installer and selecting run as Administrator?
