54 ratings | 29394 views
Problem: While installing a program, the user receives the following error message: "Warning 1909. Could not create Shortcut __.lnk. Verify that the destination folder exists and that you can access it." Solution: - manually create the required folder, - download the compressed registry file (link is below), - extract the contents to a folder you like, - double-click the "Take Ownership_Add.reg" file to add it to the Windows Registry, - go to the folder that you manually created, right-click on it, click "Take ownership" - try to continue the setup, click OK, or Retry a few times Download the registry file (same file on different servers): https://1drv.ms/u/s!AtP8fdCvCVVphXCVgMeGcCTNWqc7 or https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bw-8fzdMfWSFREZUTzZqNFROWkk To remove "Take ownership" from the context menu run the "Take Ownership_Remove.reg" file.

Click on the wheel in the lower right corner, than go to speed and set it to 0.75 or 0.5.

This didn't work for me. However what DID work for me was to turn off Windows Defender's shitty Control Folder Access or whatever it was called, under virus protection settings.

- "Everything" is only the search program, download the registry file, double-click on it, and you should get a confirmation window (shown at 1:32). - Make sure you have administrator rights on that PC. - Try to temporarily disable antivirus software, or the User Account Control, to avoid blocking. - Restart Windows - Look for "Take ownership" in other sub-menus of the right-click menu.

@1:25 When you say let's try another thing, what are you pushing to bring up that window that you are typing in?

That is a super fast (real-time) search tool called "Everything", you have to download it and install it separately. You can set a hotkey in "Everything" to open a new search window.

Windows is still shit after over 25 years of development. Maybe another 25 will give use something that doesn't have annoying shit like this.

thanks! I too had the 1909 error installing VmWare 12.5 and tried everything including taking ownership of various folders. The one I missed until viewing your video was the startup folder. taking ownership did it for me. Even though an error of not being able to right a registry entry for the lnk appeared, the program installed and has not given me any problems during its use THANKS!!
