Hi,

I downloaded Win 7 x64 with the student offer.
But when I'm "unloading the box" installing it I get this error

"We are unable to create or save new files in the folder in which this applicaiton was downloaded. Please check the folder properties to make sure that you have security permission on the folder to write files and that folder is not read-only.

Any suggestions?
