RAM Disk failed to install - MoveFile failed; code 2   05 December 2012, 11:55

When trying to install RAM Disk, the installation cannot be completed due to this error message:

C:\Program Files\SoftPerfect RAM Disk\ramdiskws.exe

An error occurred while trying to rename a file in the destination directory:
MoveFile failed; code 2.
The system cannot find the file specified.

Click Retry to retry again, Ignore to skip this file (not recommended), or Abort to cancel installation.

This error will remain even when I try installing RAM Disk in a different location.

A possibly important point to note is that I have Symantec Endpoint Protection running on my machine. Is it incompatible with RAM Disk and preventing the installation?

May be it does not like the RAM disk's executable for some reason.

Try disabling real-time file checking and then install the software.
