Weblogic deployment error - advice required

I need help! I am neither a Weblogic Expert or Windows administration expert.

I have installed Weblogic 10 on a Windows 2008 Server machine. However when I start the server I get the following error when the webserver attempts to deploy a web application I want to run.

The error is as follows:
Errors were encountered while scanning the descriptors or deployment plan for this application. These errors are sufficiently serious that they prevent further progress in processing this request. Depending on the exact problem, more details may be available from the log.

[J2EE:160110]ERROR: Appc could not create the working directory, 'C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Temp\.appmergegen_1287671086749_primaveraweb.ear'.Please ensure that this directory can be created and try again.

I understand the error to be a privileges issue but I need advice as to what action I should take. Should I be changing something in my Weblogic configuration? Or is this just a Windows 2008 security issue?

Any help would be really appreciated

Welcome to JR Andy.

Looks like a problem with write access to the directory. Change the permissions if you can do that. Or you can change deployment to another directory where you already have the permissions.
