I was suggested to use NirCmd from this quesiton. However, when I pressed the "Copy to windows directory" button, I got this error. Why?

Are you trying to copy the directory where NirCMD is located? – soandos Jul 22 '12 at 20:41

You aren't running Nircmd as an administrator. righ-click it and click "run as administrator."
