Unable to Install LibreOffice_6.0.3_Win_x64.msi

I’m getting the “error 1303” message when I try to install this version. How can I resolve it? I’ve never had this problem before. I am the admin for my laptop.

(Edit: activated screenshot -AK)

The simplest fixes for this question have been to restart your computer & then continue the install. Clicking the ‘Error-1303’ tag at the top of the page will also give you a large number of other identical questions with fixes to pursue.

An MS User-answers site for Win7 that seems to have good possibilities includes:-

  1. Reboot into safe mode
  2. Go to the folder that is causing the problem
    (refer to the error message)
  3. Right click | Properties | Administrative folder for security | Edit the permissions
  4. Apply | OK | Close folder

In Safe-Mode you can many things that Windows will refuse to allow you to do normally. I will also add my personal thought that the range of permissions that Windows contains is absolutely insane - far larger than even I as a support professional envisioned.

Reboot now back into ‘normal’ windows and - crossed fingers - you can install as normal.
