Windows Cannot complete the extraction. The destination file could not be created.

I keep getting the above error message whenever I try to install an update to a program I already have and use daily.

The program vendor is at a loss to explain why this happens, but it happens on two different computers.

Hello Connie,

Typically, this message occurs when the ZIP file is in a protected area.

To resolve the problem, move the ZIP file into one of your user profile sub folders, like Downloads, Documents, Pictures, etc.  Then try to extract the files.

If that doesn't work, the ZIP file may be corrupted.  You should replace it with a new download from the source.
