On Windows 7 while installing Vagrant 1.7.1 from the msi file, I get the error: "Error writing to file C:\Config.Msi..."

I read a few suggestions for this general kind of issue and tried:

  • re-registering msiexec.exe
  • isacl icacls "C:\Config.Msi" /T /C /grant administrators:F

Other programs install OK. I previously had Vagrant 1.3.7 installed but I have uninstalled it.

  • Why are you installing Vagrant in the root directory? You are having permissions problems for that reason. – Ramhound Jan 5 '15 at 15:08
  • It's not the case. I am installing Vagrant in the default location using the intstaller. That is C:\HashiCorp\vagrant. I have got past my problem and will post an answer later today with my findings. – Dizzley Jan 6 '15 at 7:56
