There was a notification when installing the program: "An error occurred while trying to create the C:\Users\Public\Documents\Dlubal directory". How to solve it?


You may not be sufficiently authorized to install new programs. Try to right-click on the installation file from the menu, and select ‘Run As Administrator’. If this does not help make sure you have the rights to the folder. You can assign rights using Windows Explorer: Choose a folder and open the appropriate properties. On the Security tab, for example, you can define full access for a user group or a selected user using the Edit button.
