Administrator account - error
Hi, I'm running Windows XP Home and have only one user account, set as
computer administrator. However when I try to install programs and access the
'documents' folder in 'my computer', I am blocked. The error message that
appears when trying to install is:

Error 1303: The installer has insufficient privelidges to access this
directory: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Deliveries. The
installation cannot continue. Log on as an administrator or contact your
system administrator.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated, thanks.

The path for the installation is wrong.

"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Deliveries" no longer
exists in Vista. You need to change the installation path to:

"C:\Users\username\Documents\My Deliveries (where "username" is the account
you are currently logged on with)
