1.26. "Msvcrt40.dll could not be opened"

Applies to: @RISK for Project 4.1

When trying to install @RISK, I get this error message:

The file 'C:\Windows\system32\Msvcrt40.dll' could not be opened. Please check that your disk is not full and that you have access to the destination directory.

This appears to be a Windows permissions problem rather than a problem in @RISK. For the solution, please see Microsoft's article msvcrt40.dll could not be opened, and use Method 2 to take ownership of the file. (Our link to the article was correct as of 2015-09-14. If the link does not work for you, try searching at Microsoft.com for the text "msvcrt40.dll could not be opened", with the quote marks.)
