Hi,



This is one of the most common questions/frustrations about Windows Vista. Even if you log on as an administrator, you don't really have administrative rights, thanks to UAC (User Account Control). UAC runs almost everything using non-administrator rights to help protect you from bad software that would abuse those administrator rights to change your settings or install viruses.

When you run a setup program, UAC should automatically prompt you to run it as an administrator using the UAC prompt (which Microsoft calls the "consent" prompt). If you don't see this, right-click the program, and then click Run As Administrator. Then, it will really run as an administrator. It should have prompted you, but for some reason, Vista didn't realize it needed Administrator rights. It wouldn't hurt to check the software developer's website for a version of the program made for Vista; that would also fix the problem.

If you really get sick of this, you can try disabling UAC-you'll be giving up a lot of Vista's security benefits, though, so I don't recommend it.


Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I am trying to set up a home network, between my laptpo, which is running Vista, and my desktpo which is running Windows 7. when I install a driver, I keep getting AIOC.exe has stopped working. Can sombody...


I suggest you use the driver from the Lexmark website. You may need to uninstall the existing Lexmark X1270 driver first before installing the new one (instructions on how to uninstall the Lexmark software available at http://bit.ly/8ZH59T). Then, check if your Vista and Windows 7 are running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by going to the Start menu > right click on Computer > Properties. Download the compatible driver for your operating system:
Thank you for choosing Lexmark.

I have windows vista and i am trying to install my lexmark x4270 and it will not install on my computer.


Are you getting any particular error messages on the computer when installing the software? If none, uninstall any existing Lexmark software in the computer properly by clicking on the Windows logo Start menu > Programs > Lexmark Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Reboot pc. To reinstall, I advise you to use the updated version of the software w/c is available for download in the Lexmark website. Before downloading, check if your Vista is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by clicking on the Windows logo Start menu> right click on Computer > Properties. To download, click on the operating system of your computer below:
- Windows Vista (32-bit)
- Microsoft Vista x64 (64-bit)
Install the software. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment. I'll get right back to it.

Upgrade vista home premium


As per my knowledge, there is no version of Vista called Vista Professional like in Windows XP.
Make sure what is the version to which you want to upgrade to from Vista Home Premium to Vista Business or Vista Ultimate.
The available versions of Vista Operating Systems along with the features supported from the Link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/compare-editions/default.aspx

However, if you want to Upgrade the current version of Vista to a higher version like Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, you need to purchase Vista Anytime Upgrade kit from any retail store or directly from Microsoft.
You can find the required information related to Anytime Upgrade Kit from the link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-overview.aspx

However, make sure that you had created the Recovery Disks for your notebook using which you will be able to reinstall the preinstalled Operating Sytem along with all the Preinstalled Applications and Drivers after which you need to use the Vista Upgrade Kit to upgrade to higher version of Vista.
However, if you are currently having a 32 Bit Vista preinstalled in the Notebook, it is not possible to upgrade to a 64 Bit Vista since you can upgrade only a 32 Bit of Operating System to a higher version of 32 Bit Operating System and a 64 Bit Operating System to a higher version of 64 Bit Operating System.
Hope this helps....
