Adobe PDF 7.0 Installation Error: Insufficient Privileges

My dad was trying to install Adobe Acrobat 7.0 when he got an error saying that he didn’t have sufficient privileges to create C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Adobe PDF, and that he should log into an Administrator account or contact the system administrator. Needless to say, he is the administrator and he was on the administrator account.

Here was the fix:

Navigate to the folder mentioned. Right-click its parent directory, go to Properties -> Sharing. Uncheck the box for sharing and click OK. Then open the properties again and share it, but also be sure to check the box that allows network users to change your files.

That worked for us.
