The Installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory (Alibre Script Library install issue)

Alibre Design may have difficulty installing if you have remapped your Documents folder to a non-default drive, but have not given yourself Full Control permissions to the new folder location.  If this is the case, then you may encounter the below error message while attempting the install.



This issue can be resolved if "Full Control" is given to the "Administrators" group on the Documents folder.

To do so, go to the Documents folder, right-click on the folder and select Properties, then click on the Security tab.  

Next, select the "Administrators" group from the "Group or user names" list, and click Edit.




Then, select the "Allow Full Control" option, and click Apply.


The Alibre Design 2019 installation should now work on a system where the Documents folder has been mapped to a non-default drive.
