NSIS Error when trying to run new installation of 3.7.3 win 32

Reported by: Andrew Bristol Owned by:

Keywords: temp folder Cc:

After downloading the setup file for 3.7.3, I try to run and get an error message, "Error writing temporary file. Make sure your temp folder is valid." Which temp folder is this referring to and how does one make it valid?

Check your environment for something like TMP or TEMP. This directory is the directory for temporary data. If you cannot write to it, your user lacks permissions. Ask your system administrator to grant your write access to that directory or to install FileZilla for you.

Alternatively, you can use the ZIP archive.

I have several TEMP folders. Which one does FileZilla work with? I am the administrator and have all rights. I have not had this problem with any previous version of FileZilla. I copied my older 3.7.2 from my backup drive to the Download directory. When I installed 3.7.2, there were no problems.
