Last updated on OCTOBER 14, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle JDeveloper - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Jdeveloper Self Extraction is Failing in the Self Extraction step

In this scenario, user has two accounts: one that is used every day and one that has elevated privileges to allow software installation.
After having downloaded the JDeveloper files, when the installer is run using "Run as Administrator" to use the Administrator User, however the following error shows up:


Being logged in with one account, the installer is not able to read or write the files from the other account.
An attempt was also made to perform the install using the privileged account and it works fine, but later, changing folders access as "Shared" does not allow to use the product from the first user account.

Is there a way around this issue to be able to install this product?
