Sitecore installation wizard access denied

When installing the Sitecore Update Installation Wizard package (via the standard installation wizard on the Sitecore desktop) I was getting the following error:
Access to path 'F:\install\...'
My computer did not have an F drive mapped and the website was configured to use the the standard wwwroot folder on the C drive.

Sitecore installation wizard - access denied error
It turns out that the three folders for the Sitecore website (Data, Databases and Website) did not have the correct permissions assigned to them. By fixing up the security on these folders, the package was able to install as expected. For some reason, the wizard displayed/tried to use a drive which was not mapped.
