jcell,
OK, let's try a couple of other things here.  Have you tried running the files in XP compatibility mode?  Instead of double clicking the file to run it, right click on the file and select "run in compatibility mode" and then select XP.  that might work. 

But we need to find out why it is saying your temp directory is full or read only.  Let's run a system file check to verify the integrity of your system files.  To do that:

To run the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:
Click Start
then type cmd in the Start Search box.
Right-click cmd in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue
At the command prompt, the following line, and then press ENTER:
sfc /scannow
When the scan is complete, test to see whether the issue that you are experiencing is resolved.

Let me know if that resolves your issue or if you still need assistance.

Thanks,
