Error installing on Windows10

I have an error installing Modeler (BizagiModelerSetup_3.2.6.094_x64) on Windows 10, screenshot attached. I have used Modeler successfully on Windows 7 for a few years but this is the first time installing on a new Win10 laptop. I have .Net 4.7.2 installed (was installed on the laptop when I got it, confirmed by registry keys). I have been assigned local administrator on my laptop and have successfully installed a few other programs.


"Error 1310.Error writing to file: C:\Program Files\Bizagi\Bizagi Modeler\Modeler\BizagiModeler.exe. Verify that you have access to that directory"

Oddly, I went to the Modeler directory and I can create new folder but cannot right-click create new files. I am running the installer using "Run as Administrator".

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Dear Randall,

In order to install Bizagi Modeler correctly, please select another path. Or you can also give full rights to the folder.

The main problem is because "You don't have necessary permissions to write into some system folders."

Another possible solution is:

  • Go to C:\Program Files
  • Right-click on Bizagi folder and click Properties
  • Go to Security tab
  • Click on Edit... to change permissions
  • In the new dialog window, click on Administrators and then check the box Full Control below. Then do the same for Users.
  • Click Apply and OK to apply changes. Then do the same in the remaining dialog window.

Best regards
