It's a Windowz server.


"Numbered" permissions like "777" or "444" don't apply.

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Those files are set to read only in windows speak.


you know if use windows explorer and you right click on a file name and select properies there is a read only box that you can tick.


So you need to untick that on these files and once the installation has completed make them read only again.
