While installing PhantomPDF, you might encounter the following error message even though you are an administrator.
“The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Foxit Software\Foxit PhantomPDF\". The installation cannot continue. Log on as a administrator or contact your system administrator.”
This error indicates trouble with specific privileges while an attempt to access the referenced directory. To work around it, follow the installation steps below.
1. Move the MSI setup file to C:\ drive.
2. Open Windows Command Prompt (Admin) to launch it.
3. On the command line, input msiexec /i “path\Setup.msi", press enter to start the installation wizard.
If the above solution still doesn't help,we suggest you close anti-virus software(E.g.Webroot) or add Foxit to the white list in
anti-virus software on your machine since sometimes anti-virus software may prevent a program from being installed.
