Error writing to file: eOne.SmartConnect.Common.dll

During installation of SmartConnect, receiving an error that says ‘Error writing to file: eOne.SmartConnect.Common.dll.  Verity that you have access to that directory.’

This can be caused by three things

1. Make sure you are logged into Windows as a user that has local machine administrator rights.

2. On Windows 2008 and Windows 7 machines, when you run the installer file, you need to right click on it and pick ‘Run as Administrator’.

3. SmartConnect 2011 requires the .NET 4 Framework to be installed. If this is installed, and the machine is not rebooted, you will get this error. Reboot the workstation and try and install SmartConnect again.
