I have a TravelMate 5520 Acer laptop.
I have installed Windows Vista Ultimate and
I've tried several times installing a civil
engineer program called statics 2007, which
use a HASP key. When I write the code of the
HASP the program shows this message: I/O Error 5 P=2 C=72
Access is denied. After that when I press OK it says:
IORes1=2. After this message the program fails to start.
This message comes from the program not windows.

I've tried dissabling Windows Defender, Windows FireWall,
installing the latest alladin drivers which support
Vista but the problem was not resolved. I also tried
installing the program in a different disk hard drive
(I have a 250Gb Partitioned into two parts, hard driver)
and still nothing.

Does anyone knows what can I do to fix this problem

Have you tried disabling UAC

Thanks a lot! It worked!

Good.

There are a couple of other options you may try to get it to run when UAC is on (prefferable).

Rather than installing it to the Program Files tree, try installing it to C:\MyAppFolder or \Users\AccountName\AppData\Local\MyAppFolder.

For the installation of this program I require an activation code which I get through phone so is not so easy experimenting with different ways of installation. I will have it in mind though.

Thank you again for your help!
