Got this when trying to import an Anki 1.2 deck into Anki 2.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\cygwin\home\dae\win\build\pyi.win32\anki\outPYZ1.pyz/anki.importing.anki1", line 25, in run File "C:\cygwin\home\dae\win\build\pyi.win32\anki\outPYZ1.pyz/anki.upgrade", line 127, in upgrade File "C:\cygwin\home\dae\win\build\pyi.win32\anki\outPYZ1.pyz/anki.collection", line 48, in init File "C:\cygwin\home\dae\win\build\pyi.win32\anki\outPYZ1.pyz/anki.media", line 36, in init WindowsError: [Error 5] Access is denied: u'c:\users\matt\appdata\local\temp\anki_temp\b9h_ad.media'

    Please reboot your computer and try again. If that does not help, take a look at the permissions on the folder listed in the path (if you don't understand how to do that, do you have a friend or administrator who could help you out?).

    Some instances of this issue were fixed in 2.0.8, so please ensure you're on the latest version. If the problem persists and you can't wait for 2.0.9, please install Anki 1.2.8 from https://code.google.com/p/anki/downloads/list?can=1&q=&cols... and open the deck with that first, which will upgrade it to a state that it can be imported into Anki 2.
