Unable to install Connections 4.5 Ear file not found during News install

I was upgrading a Connections 4 deployment in place and ran into the following issue: Install of the 4.5 code failed on news install on following error:

[exec]   [wsadmin] WASX7017E: Exception received while running file "E:profiles8Dmgr01ConfigEngineconfigworkwascurJaclScript.jacl"; exception information: com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.AdminException
     [exec]   [wsadmin] javax.management.MBeanException
     [exec]   [wsadmin] com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.AdminException
     [exec]   [wsadmin] com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.AdminException: ADMA0043E: C:Users.WRA_AdminAppDataLocalTemp2app8342204399205721911.ear does not exist for installation.

I tried a lot of things like checking security, putting a file monitor on the temp folder (to see the file actually exists during install), I reinstalled WebSphere and Cognos.

In the end I changed my users temp varialble to C:temp and install went fine

    Hi, We are stuck with the exact same issue in our environment. Error msg goes like this…
    WASX7017E: Exception received while running file “D:/apps/passport/scripts/Install_GSRS.py”; exception information: com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.AdminException
    javax.management.MBeanException
    com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.AdminException: ADMA0043E: C:Documents and SettingsghattsiLocal SettingsTempaapp4013327970273100301.ear does not exist for installation.

    In your explanation above did you verify that the path for TEMP exists?
    In our case, the exact same setup works in a lower environment so we are unsure whether changing user TEMP ENV variable to C:TEMP will fix the issue. Please advise.
