Where [2] represents a folder that the installation is unable to create. This error most often occurs due to security restrictions (insufficient permissions to perform the target location identified as [2]).
Try performing the installation as administrator, or if the installation is being performed by the system (before logon), ensure SYSTEM has permission to create folders in this subfolder.
A manual method of dealing with the problem is to go to one folder level below the [2] directory and assign Authenticated User FULL CONTROL and propagate it down the subdirectory tree.
NOTE: You could head this situation off by creating this folder beforehand and assigning the necessary permissions.
These permission changes could also be handled by a script or through the use of Group Policy.
