Check the directory c:\UnityProTemp (Hidden directory) has the following rights: Read, Execute and Write.
  If these paths are not accessible an error message will appear and the requested operation will fail.
 
-   Access rights & Multi instances: As some components are shared, when several instances of Unity Pro are launched,
   rights access must be the same on all the instances.
 
-    In Windows 7 , if UAC (User Account Control) is set, and if Unity Pro is executed without checking "Run as Administrator", system
folders can be only be accessed in read only and FFB Libset cannot be modified.
