Windows Installer Folder permissions

  fazza 20:07 28 Oct 2006

I am trying to install a driver for Maxtor external disk driver and am getting an installshield error 1607: unable to install installshield scripting runtime.

I am trying to amend the permissions on the c:\windows\installer folder but don't see the security tab. On file properties i can see that read only checkbox is green and i am unable to change this as it is a 'system' folder. Any assistance would be appreciated.
