NSIS v2.46-7 creates huge temp file that eats space

I am trying to install QGIS for 32-bit Vista from http://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/download.html QGIS-OSGeo4W-2.8.1-1-Setup-x86.exe 3ac06c5a178374fb92738f6f8308d321

I don't have time on system disk C: (1Gb only) and I install it on E: (with 2Gb, which is enough). The installation fails in the middle with the error that file can not be written. Every time file is different, and the space on disk C: ends.

E: disk is equally filled for 1Gb with unpacked files.

NSIS v2.46-7 sounds like a unofficial fork so you posted in the wrong forum . Anyway, NSIS installers compressed with solid compression need space in %tmp%.

Start cmd.exe and type
set tmp=e:\temp
md "%tmp%"
