When I try to install skype on windows 7 Professional, I have the following error message: Error when trying to create the directory : C\users\<user name>\AppData and then I have to stop the installation.
Does anyone has an idea of how to overcome that error?.
Thanks in advance
Most likely, your Windows registry database contains wrong data on location of user special folders. Hopefully you can fix this using the procedure provided here:
Many thanks for your post that is very interesting. However it seems to apply only to installation problems with Microsoft programmes and the problem I have is in installing Skype.
Anyhow, in the registry the only difference I have found with the parameters listed in the article number : 886549 is that in the key
there is a sub-key named CD Burning not listed in the article number : 886549, but I do not see the possible influence with skype. Am I missing something important? or should we look for another possible cause?.
Thanks for any reply.
Is the registry value for AppData “%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming”?
Go to Windows Start and in the Search box type this value, i.e. %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming and then press Enter. What do you see now?
