Cannot install on vista

Recommended Posts

I have to install fm12 pro on vista and keep getting an error message. It seems I need administrator rights, which I have. I used a few logins that all have administrator rights. Any ideas?

Hi mieser

I hope this will help...

Use Windows Explorer to navigate to and find the FM12 installer - the .exe - it may be called "Setup.exe".  Instead of double clicking that .exe, try a single right click.  A dialog will appear and either the second or third item down will be "Run as Administrator".  Left click and stand back!  I believe this may solve the Windows UAC permissions issues which plague Vista.  Yes, I know you're on an Admin account - I get that.  This elevated command gets you a "token" with even higher privileges.

Let us know how this goes.  And will keep fingers crossed - good luck!

I thought we had something there, but it didn't work. This is insane. I have the software working on other Vista machines and can't figure out what's different here. Any other ideas? I really liked the last one. Thank you

Mike
