Tried to install Office Printing Essentials and got the error "Not enough space on C drive." I have 144 gigs free and the app is only 1.1 gig. Why do I have such an error?

Most of the application need to decompress before installing the application, then you can installed in the specified installation folder, the problem may be in the position of system cache is full, and there is no space, or system cache are pointing to the wrong place, such as location network disk drive virtual disk and so on.

1.Use Easeus Cleangenius Remove junk files and unwanted software etc.
2.Restart the computer
3.Try reinstall

The reason for this error might be the administrative rights on your computer. If you are trying to run the application as a limited user, the application won't have necessary rights to "write"(copy) or make changes to the file system that's installed on the C drive. Therefore, you can either create another username with Administrator access or right click the installation package and select Run as Administrator.
