I have tried the -A option, the -B option as single user to no avail. There is no antivirus running. Well, there is in general in our PCs, but no installed on my test machine. I have also tried another mirror to re-download the packages in a local repository, but it didn't work either. Can you provide your local repo data to check? Just to ensure that my local repo is not the problem.

Probably, but I would need more information to prove it. I am suspecting a Windows Group Policy, but I would have to be sure and prove it in order to request the exception from our Windows Team. At least if you provide me with your repository, I could claim that this works for a normal PC and not for our environment and they could have something to investigate, rather simply ask if something forbids the access of the files from an executable.

I forgot to mention that we are using Windows 7 and I don't know if the setup behaves different on that operating system.
