Where 3 names the folder and 2 names the Win32 error code that results from trying to write to this folder. If the error dialog does not present this information, check the application event log.
To identify more detail about where the temporary file cannot be created- and what error is being returned. Turn on Windows Installer logging and attempt the operation again.
If the temporary file already exists, delete it- it has been reported that creating a temporary file when one exists (possibly in a locked or otherwise unknown state) can result in this error.
In addition to checking the permissions of the specified file for your access by "Authenticated Users" or "Everyone" also make certian the "SYSTEM" account has sufficeint access.
