If you recieve a message that says "This program requires administrative privileges to run" you must have administrative privileges to sucessfully install the program.

Solution: Log in as an administrator or member of the Administrators group.

To determine whether your Windows user account allows you to log in with administrator rights:

Windows 2000 or XP:

1. Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and choose Manage from the pop-up menu.

2. In the left pane, expand System Tools, and then click Local Users and Groups.

3. In the right pane, double-click Groups.

4. Double-click Administrators. If your account has administrator rights, it appears in the Members section.

Note: If the account you are logged into doesn't have administrator rights, Windows may return the error "The following error occurred accessing the properties of the local group Administrators: Access is denied. The local group properties cannot be edited or viewed at this time." Contact your system administrator for assistance.
