    Mainly this Problem is when the %TEMP% variable is not set with the correct value. It might also be that user does not have the access to write %TEMP% folder. We can fix the Error by following these Steps.

    STEP 1: Right - Click on “My Computer” and select “Properties”.
    STEP 2: Click on the “Advanced System Settings”.
    STEP 3: Click on the “Environment Variables”.
    STEP 4: In User Variables, select “TEMP” under “Variables” and Click on the “Edit” Button.
    STEP 5: Set the Variable Value to “%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp”.
    STEP 6: Click on the “Ok” Button.
    STEP 7: Logoff and Login to the System as Administrator. Your Error is Fixed.
