Windows 7 Update: Bug in the RC’s root directory is fixed [Source: view picture gallery]
Microsoft's Windows 7 Release Candidate is affected by a bug that could cause some trouble: Incorrect access rights in the root directory can prevent the correct installation or removal of programs and applications. Microsoft has already assembled a patch that is supposed to fix the bug.
The problem comes into effect during the installation of the Windows 7 Release candidate. The root directory doesn't get all the important access rights, which can prevent the installation and removal of programs if the user is not logged in as administrator. The bug affects the 32 Bit version of the Windows 7 RC. The 64 Bit version is working correctly.
The Patch is delivered via the Windows 7 update. Affected users can force the installation. More articles related to Windows 7:
