You might try right clicking on the install file and go to "Run As
Administrator". If that still doesn't work, right click, go to properties,
then on Compatibility. Select Windows XP SP2, and run as administrator.
If those don't work, let us know.
It sounds like it isn't running with admin privledges and needs them to
access the registry.
