    Permissions error - Windows Server 2003 R2

    Hi folks,

    I installed a Windows Server 2003 R2 a few weeks ago onto our
    network/domain, and all went fine. It is not a DC, it is a member server.
    I'm not trying to install Symantec AV Server on it via a unc path from
    another server and got the below error, and when I copy the downloaded
    software onto the desktop and click on the setup.exe file, I get the same
    error message: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file.
    You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." I'm logged
    in as the domain admin, and this is the only machine I am having this trouble
    with. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Hello Mike,

    Add the server to the trusted sites in the Internet explorer settings.

    What i also saw sometimes, that you have to create a real drive mapping to
    install some software.

    Best regards

    Meinolf,

    Thanks for the response. I was about to post the fix I found for this. I
    went into add/remove Windows Components, and uninstalled the Internet
    Explorer Enhanced Security component. This seems to have made my permissions
    type error message go away.

    Thanks,

    Mike
