    Insufficient rights when creating Start Menu items during installation


    Hi forum,

    I have an issue when installing software in general on my Windows 10 Pro installation.

    So far i've tried with Skype and VirtualBox and both installations are having issues when it comes to create the Start Menu shortcuts, i get the error and have to cancel the installation: The installer has insufficient privileges to access the directory: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Oracle VM VirtualBox. The installer cannot continue. Log on as administrator or contact your system administrator.

    What i've tried so far:



    These steps have helped some users with the same issue, but i cant seem to catch a break, i still can't install software.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    :)

  2. Anniversary Upgrade completely re-wrote (deleted) the existing start menu items.

    The link you provided was for people who can not access the Start Menu at all. My Start Menu is working, but all the items that were added by me and by Windows during the initial installation were deleted. Even icons for Microsoft Office were removed by
    the update.

    I am having to slowly add the Start Menu item back as I need them.

  3. Can't add anything to Start menu

    At some point in the last month or two, I stopped being able to add items to the start menu. Right-clicking on something and selecting "Pin to start menu" does nothing. When I install software, it doesn't appear in the start menu or in start-menu search.
    (Programs installed earlier are still available in both places.) Any ideas?

    Hi, you might be in luck if you try just relevant repairs related to permissions using Tweaking.com's free repair tool, observing its several cautious steps.

    When did this start to happen? Ever since you installed/upgraded to Win 10? Since an update or some other event?

    Do you have any restore points prior to this starting?
    Or disk images?
