I am running W7 Pro as a sole user with full Administrators rights on a new PC.
I have been installing software such as Word 2002, my scanner and similar but hit a problem when attempting to install Pinnacle Studio Plus 9 when I received the message that I need Administrators rights to install software when I put the CD into the drive.
I know that Pinnacle Studio Plus 9 is identified as being for up to XP; could this be the reason for the message? I am unsure as to whether XP Mode has been enabled as yet but am aware that W7 Pro has this facility.
I guessed that it would be down to compatibility but it is the first time I have seen the "Administrators rights to install software" message. I have never seen it before even with software designed for W2000; the CDs simply loaded and ran.
I guess I should enable XP Mode and try again. If that fails then I will try the compatibility mode in your link. My final option is finding a lot of money for the new version/upgrade currently around £60 - ouch!!
You're welcome - this message is very common in Windows 7 and can usually be fixed, if the programme is compatible, by right-clicking on the icon for the particular applications and programmes and choosing "Run as Administrator". It can appear even if the programme is not incompatible as a security measure.
