Error while installing SQL Server 2012 - Access to the path 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\License Terms\SQLServerDenaliCTP_License_EVAL_1033.rtf' is denied.

When installing SQL Server 2012 you might run into an error which says "Access to the path 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\License Terms\SQLServerDenaliCTP_License_EVAL_1033.rtf' is denied."

To workaround this error, browse to the path "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\License Terms\" and change the property of file "SQLServerDenaliCTP_License_EVAL_1033.rtf" to remove "Read-Only" and then click "Retry" and the installation will continue.
