I am trying to install the 32-bit SQLDOM.MSI from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29065. The installation fails with the error:

"Error writing to file: Microsoft.SqlServer.TransactSql.ScriptDom.dll. Verify that you have access to that directory."

I have verified that the MSI is intact by installing it on other machines.

I agree with ajhuddymsdn. The issue should not have been closed and the MSI should have checked for .NET 4.0 first.

Thank you Arvind for posting the solution. I had the same issue and it was because .NET 4.0 was not installed.

No, it shouldn't be closed. The MSI should give a warning that .NET 4.0 is not installed.

My apologies, please close this as a false alarm. The issue occurred due to non-installation of the .NET 4.0 framework.

It would have been nice to have a pre-requisite check, though :-)
