Right click on the file you want to use, goto properties then compatibility.

Then check the box that says run this program in compatibility mode for....then choose what operating system you want.

I have a new windows vista and am trying to download cd that came with my hp photo smart camera E317 and vista doesnt let me. It says I have to log on as administrator.


hi roberson
you could do .

In Windows Vista, you do not have immediate access to the Admin Account. When logging into Windows Vista, you do not have the option of using this account.

From the Start menu, simply right-click on Computer and choose Manage. Next, expand Local Users and Groups and select the Users folder. The final step is to right-click on the Administrator login and choose properties. Clear the Account is Disabled checkbox and you have now enabled your Administrator account.

ADmin rights on Vista Home Basic


For vista
Open the control panel and select System and Maintenance.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Administrative Tools.

In the new window open Computer Management.

From there open System Tools.

Now open Local Users and Groups.

And finally open Users.

Right click on the account named Administrator and select Properties.

There is a series of tick boxes in the lower half of the properties window deselect the one saying Account Is Disabled.

Apply the changes and Log Off, there should now be 2 accounts in your log in screen, select administrator.


when you go to delete your old account it'll ask you if you want to save the documents and settings from it. say yes and copy the files from the folder into your new admin account.
