Visual Studio Express Setup Failed: Access is Denied & Runtime - 11.0.50...


  • I am trying to install Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows Desktop and get the following errors:

    Setup Engine - Access is denied.

    Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 x64 Additional Runtime - 11.0.50; User cancelled installation

    I have given my profile every single Admin permission possible.  I have even tried this directly on my Administrator account and the same errors come up.  I have also tried installing SQL Server 2012 manually and downloaded the SubInACL program.

  • Hi,

    From your post, I think this issue related to the UAC. I guess that your current account have not the full permission of Administrator. Please disable your Anti Virus software and re-install the Visual Studio as the administrator.
