Permission denied error upon installation

Unable to complete the install of your Tecplot product due to a “Permissions denied” error.

Upon installing Tecplot, if your installation quits before completion with the error message “Permission denied.”  This could be due to permission restrictions set by your computer.  This has been found to be true for SE Linux but could be true for any secure platform.
Another cause for permission issues may be caused by the settings of your security software.  Make sure that your security software will allow permissions to the Tecplot installation files. On Windows, be sure to install Tecplot as Administrator.
