I am trying to install Windows 8 Transformation Pack v4.0 on my Sony Vaio laptop with the following options:


When I run (as administrator) the setup file, it starts to install but gives the following error at some point:

The file 'C:\Windows\Fonts\segoui.ttf' could not be opened. Please check that your disk is not full and that you have access to the destination directory.


Since I run the installer as administrator, this error message seems strange to me. Segoe UI font is also installed on my PC.

When I try to install with default system fonts (without Segoe UI), it gives the same error again:

w8tpsetupscreen2 error

What should I do to solve this problem?

From the webiste: "For those who have installing font error during installation, please reboot and run the installation again to fix permission problem. I don't know why some cases have this and I'm investigating on it now." Read more at windowsxlive.net/… –  Brian Apr 10 '12 at 13:44
I've restarted & re-run the installation many times but to no avail. –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar Apr 10 '12 at 13:52
Have you tried removing and reinstalling that font? (if possible) –  ekaj Apr 10 '12 at 17:16
No I haven't... –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar Apr 10 '12 at 17:36
As a side note, why would you want to turn Windows 7 into Windows 8? Ew! –  Synetech Apr 22 '12 at 0:45
