try this:

[FONT=Verdana]Vista/Win-7 ‘User Account Control’[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]If you are running Vista/Windows-7, try turning off ‘User Account Control’ located in Windows Control-Panel/User Accounts[/FONT]

Tried that too. I've tried reinstalling, repairing, running as admin, downloading with different browsers, disabling firewalls, disabling user account control, basically anything I could think of. I'm at a loss, and need some tech support badly

Oh MY GOD ! After 2 months of breaking my brain i have finally found the solution for the problem of FAILED to create directory.....

The solution is:

1 ) Go in the Windows Control panel/ User account control.
2 ) CREATE A NEW USER ACCOUNT and set this account at the Administrator status ( same window )
3 ) Switch to this new administrator account.
4) Click ventrilo icon on the desktop and... MIRACLE : it works !
