Installation Error 'failed to create menus'

I am trying to install “Anaconda3-2021.11-Windows-x86_64.exe” on my 64-bit Windows 7 SP1. I get ‘failed to create menus’ on ‘Creating Anaconda3 menus’ section of the installation.

I’ve attached the screenshot.

The problem I see is the installation create a random directory “_MEI” with random 6 digit numbers in ‘Temp’ directory and place installation files there. And it includes “python39.dll”. But before it comes to ‘Creating Anaconda3 menus’ section it deletes the files in the Temp directory (that starts with “_MEI”) then searches files (searching includes for python39.dll) in that folder.

How can we solve this issue?

Do you have write permissions on your machine to the directory ‘C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Local\Temp’ folder? Most likely you don’t - I would try copying a file to that directory. Check with your Windows system administrator too, if you still have problems. He should be able to help you with this kind of problem.

Hope this helps. I know that Windows installer problems can be very frustrating.
