Is the Windows machine managed by your IT at work? Any "security" or policing software installed?

"File and folder protection" active?

Did you kept the default install location or changed it to a longer path ?

There often are troubles with the 2nd case, if so, can you try with a shorter path ?

Yes~ I tried by disabling security and changing the path to c:\util, but the result is the same.

There is an old topic describing the same, to following answer looks to have solved the issue:

I've also searched around and come to the same conclusion as @KnarfB (Community Member)​ in that it appears to be a common windows issue.

 

The three solutions I've seen throughout these searches that has worked for some of the users are:

  1. Create a new user without any spaces or non-ASCII characters. This seems to only be relevant if your current user profile uses non-ASCII or spaces!
  2. Clean boot as described on Windows support page here.
  3. %TEMP% folder access rights, which has already been mentioned and tried.

 

Besides those three I haven't seen any other solutions where users reported that it worked except one where it just suddenly started working again but the user didn't mention any changes made, so not much to be learned from that case.
