Setup was unable to create directory Error 5 : access denied

I'm trying to install No Man's Sky via a GoG installer and run in through Wine however I have a problem. The default install location is C:\GOG Games\No Man's Sky ,so apparently I have a hidden c_drive I wasnt aware of? Anyway I change the location somewhere inside root and run the installer but I get an error saying Unable to create directory Error 5: access denied. I've tried running the program as sudo but it's an .exe so it didnt go so well. All the online help was also targeted towards Windows, so it wasnt helpful at all. Is there a way to fix this?

Read the Wine Documentation it explains how Wine makes it look like Windows. It makes a C drive that the Wine installer knows about. You should be following the Wine install instructions for the app.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
