Welcome to Community.
Please make sure that there is no anti-virus preventing the setup to write in that folder. Also check the permissions for that folder.
You can try again by deleting the %localappdata%\UiPath folder and try installing again.
It should work.
Thank you for replying…
before I read your comment I uninstall uipath and then deleted squirreltemp folder.
now I am getting that Uipath already exists.
I tried to delete “Uipath” folder but was not able to delete it
Then I went to properties->security->permissions
but was not able to change user at all
attaching the screenshot.
