Just went to update my iPhone to version IOS v7 connected to a Windows 7 machine. Received the error “You do not have permission to access the requested resource”. Checked all my versions and updates—there’s nothing wrong.
Here’s the solution:
NOTE: Make sure iTunes is updated and your OS is updated. This is a given.
Delete this directory: c:\Program Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\SC Info
Restart your machine then try again.
This solution worked on Windows 7 x64 with iPhone 4S.
