I'm installing Craft 2 locally and am getting this error message when I expect the installation screen. I've checked the write permissions, and the directory has them (inheritable permissions). Thanks

Fatal error: Class 'Craft\File' not found in craft\app\helpers\IOHelper.php on line 727

Sounds like you're missing some required Craft 2 files.

Try downloading a fresh copy of the latest Craft 2 and replace your existing app folder with a fresh app folder from the download.
