Due to security reasions, the some installwares are blocked by OS.
So, to run that setup your windows log-in must have administrator previleges.

  • Try to boot your system with another user name and password on your system.
  • Then try to install the software/download.

Please post your feed back whats going on.

Thanks

Your account doesnt have administrative rights.
you need to login with a user which has these.

    you should also be able to run the program, by first downloading it and then rightclicking on it -> run as administrator

    as you can see in this image, simply right click over the program and select run as administrator.

Got an error message 1935 while downloading software for a printer. tried sfc /scannow per kodak help tech, message said must sign on as administrator in console session to do this. how?


I think your system has many user accounts to log in. In your case I think you are logged in as other user in spite of administrator so the person who logs in as administrator has kept some securities so when you are trying to download anything it will ask administrator's permission,To avoid this type of errors always log in as administrator, or just remove securities from the administrator's account.

Thanks.
have a great day.

I need to add a registration code but i have to log in as an administrator to put the code in how do i do this with windows 7 without screwing up my computor


hi
by adding ur registration code you mean you are instaling a program and want to put its serial number?

if so, you need to know your local administrator password

-when you log in is there any other user accounts than the on you use try to log on by on of them

- try to run the program that you are installing in administrator mode.
-right click on the installing program that you run.
-choose run as administrator.


all the best

I cant downloading since windows put me as the standard user instead of the administrator and someone told that i have a virus or application files missing or corrput issues! so help me


Disconnect from Internet/network.
Boot your computer into Safe Mode without network support.
Run your anti-virus program to detect and remove any viruses present.
Reboot normally and see if your settings come back.

Your firewall or antivirus program is blocking the program from editing the registry if you want to use the program you need to disable your security program for the duration of the setup.

I am trying to download a game it said i must be loged in as an administrator when installing this program so what do i do and how do i do it my email is zoye125227@hotmail.com thank you


You must have administrator rights to be able to install any program or game on your computer. It may mean that the user account that you are using is either a guest acocunt or an account with limited access.

Try these steps to change your log in

1) go to the control panel
2) Select User Accounts/User Account
3) Log in as the administrator and enter the password to switch accounts

Or you can log off from your current user and relog in using the admin account. If you do not know the password, it is better to inform the admin that you have to install a game so he/she will do it for you.

Hope that helps!
