    Every time I try to download WinSCP it gives me an error code 5 : acces denied and it says Setup was unable to create the directory "C:\Program Files\WinSCP"
    How can I fix this?

    You can't run WinSCP from your iPod - and you can't create the folder "C:\Program Files\WinSCP" on your iPod. You run it from your Windows-based PC - so if you're using a Mac, run it in a VM or Parallels Desktop. Also, it may not hurt you to read the WinSCP FAQ stickied at the top of the forum.

    Two questions:

    1) Are you using Windows? If so, is this Windows XP or Windows Vista? If the latter, do you have UAC turned off?

    2) Are you logged into an account with Admin privileges? Can you install any other applications? Because you're having install issues, which suggests you don't have the permissions to do installs or that the install program doesn't have them - if it's the latter, run the installer as Administrator.
