Re: Vista Administrative Rights?
Ok, finally I see what the problem is. I must force these older versions to
prompt for the Administrative permission. Now what about those programs that
I am re-installing (all did well with the exception of 2). The disc warns me
that I cannot use the "Run as" command and must log in as Administrator? Can
I get around this? It's important cause I just bought a new "compatible"
printer and am not able to install the supporting software. No help from the
manufacturer as of yet.
