Running installation program reports a lack of disk space

Issue

I get an error stating that there is a lack of disk space when I attempt to run an installation program.

Solution

DEP (Data Execution Prevention) in the OS sometimes prevents a self-extractor program from running.

To fix:

Run My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced -> Performance Settings -> Data Execution Prevention
Browse and add the installer exe to the list of allowed programs.
