Permission denied for mint4win 64bit program.

Postby Osd1000 » Wed Oct 10, 2012 4:48 pm

Hi, when I attempted to install Linux Mint 13 on my computer via mint4win, I got a permission denied, I'm on the administrator account.
Even running it as an administrator wouldn't work, how can I fix this problem?
I also had the same problem with an openSUSE 12.1 DVD.

You might get a better response asking on a Windows forum.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

I'm having the same problem. I haven't seen an answer anywhere. I'd love to have any thoughts about this. . .

Do make sure that your WIn7 is 64-bit and that you install 64-bit versions of mint4win and the Linux Mint distribution.

I had no trouble with this (I used the "linuxmint-15-mate-dvd-64bid.iso". I was following instructions that made reference to downloading the i386 version, which I ignored and downloaded the amd64 version. The i386 versions of software are 32-bit.

You probably know all this, but double-check just to be sure :)

(Edit) Here's a link the the instructions I referenced above: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/20079/
