hello everybody,
i'm running nt 4.0 workstation. i have admin level
access but when i try to install new software the process
fails and i get a message saying i don't have enough space
in the temp directory to install software, i have to
contact the system admin (that's me). why is it doing
this and how do i get around it. i've checked my access
level and have tried using other admin level accounts. i
was able to get the windows updates but when i tried to
update my office 2000 files i got the same error message.
thanks for the help.

Sounds like the drive may be full.

at that time i had over 400 mb of space available on the
drive. i don't see why that wouldn't be enough for a 25
mb app. am i missing something?
