Hello Ramakrishnan,

Welcome to 7 Forums.

The way to do this from the account you created at install is to either right click on the install file and select 'run as administrator'. You can also set it to do this every time by rt. click/properties. Compatibility Tab and check run as admin.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Gary

Yes, I started to install by right clicking the file, and give run administrator.
It starts runs, after completing 50%, it says that the directory has not have administrator rights.
It throws an exception and came out.
