Re: NEED HELP vista wont let me extract files
Right click on the WINRAR icon, and go to Properties (last item on the
menu). Click the Compatibility tab, and click both "Run this program in
compatibility mode" for Windows XP and the "Run this program as an
administrator" options. Then click OK, and start it. You should get a UAC
prompt. Click through it and when WINRAR starts, open your archive file.
I'm pretty sure you should then be able to unpack to the Program Files
directory tree now.
BTW, running an app in an administrator account is not the same as running
an app with administrator privelages. I know it makes no sense, but that's
the way it is with apps not designed to work with Vista's new Use Account
Let us know if it this works.
