I have a problem trying to run nsetup on a vista PC, it stops with a permissions error on oleaut32.dll and basically says access denied.

i have tried running nsetup as an administrator, and also turning UAC off but it still fails.

Any help?

That's pointing towards your C:\Windows\System32 folder, where the file is stored.

Do you have 'full control' over this folder?

It turned out to be the Vista install.. something wrong with the setup, their IT is dealing with it.

For future reference, we've just had a client with a similar problem on a Windows Server 2008 R2 box. We used all best practices - logged on as Administrator, UAC off, AV/firewall off, in install mode, etc, but the installation program referenced permissions issues with the C:\Windows\System\oleaut32.dll file. The root of the problem was that the error is misleading: it should refer to the SysWow64 folder, not System32.

Taking ownership of the individual C:\Windows\SysWow64\oleaut32.dll file tried running the setup and it got passed the oleaut32.dll but failed on the next dll. The issue was finally resolved by taking ownership of the entire SysWow64 folder - adding the domain administrator under security and giving full permissions. Once the permissions were changed, the upgrade installation and nsetup ran successfully.

Hope this helps anyone with similar future problems,

Thanks for posting the solution to this Steve. Just ran into it on a 2008 R2 Terminal server and of course was changing permissions in the wrong folder.

All good now.

Cheers
