When I click the "Run Installer" I get an error. it says"Error Executing Files. D:\setup.exe, The Requested operation requirs elevation".

That means that the account priveledges on your logon are not administrator. You have to have an administrator account to install this software.

I bought the verbatim acclaim portable hard drive (turbo usb 2.0) today. It installed automatically in French... no choice of English (I want english). I did the installation and it says it is succesfull....

if your pc is in french then the hard drive install program will auto detect this and install the software in the default language , you will need to look for the english setup installer on the hard drive and install it manually. you will also need to right click on the file and click run as administrator then you wont receive the requested operation requires elevation error

When trying to install the App cd, it says an error has occured; the requested operation requires elevation. What does that mean?

This is actually part of the User Account Control (UAC) feature of Windows Vista that controls the program execution as normal user, administrator or other user types with different access control. You will get this prompt because that program will need to be run as administrator, so the quick way to fix it is re-run by right clicking the program and select Run as administrator.

2007 crown vic 4.6 l idles high on startup

This sounds like a normal condition.What happens is the cold start emission reduction component monitor(software program in the computer) is running.
Cold Start Emission Reduction Component Monitor
The Cold Start Emission Reduction Component Monitor was introduced for the 2006 MY on vehicles that meet the
LEV-II emission standards. The monitor works by validating the operation of the components of the system
required to achieve the cold start emission reduction strategy, namely retarded spark timing and elevated idle
When the CSER strategy is enabled, the idle air control system will request a higher idle rpm, elevating engine
airflow. While this CSER elevated airflow is requested, the low airflow test compares the measured idle airflow from
the MAF sensor to the commanded idle airflow from the idle air control strategy.
