Thanks, I'll check it out later on.

OK, I'm booted into Windows 7 now. Has it been changed? I can't tell just by looking at it.

MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

tell me if can install
Megaupload does not like IE8, had to use Firefox. I'll have to reboot into the Admin account to see if it works, will edit this post accordingly.
(Windows does not give the option to run a .msi files as the Admin)

Edit: Thanks Megafixer and Darkassain - it worked in the Administrator account. I got both of them uploaded. Now I'll go back to my regular account and see if I can upload templates.

The problem with .msi extensions is that there is no option to "Run as Administrator".

Edit 2: The templates install with no problem in the regular user account.

Darkassain...did you originally intend for your name to be Darkassassin by any chance? I've been meaning to ask for ages now. If so you should PM one of the MODs. (Just curious.....!!)

I forgot to mention that some process, not sure which - possibly the extraction - created a couple of dozen or so .ini files in my downloads folder, "configuration files" I think it said and they were all around 4kb. I deleted them and there doesn't seem to be any problem with that.

Anyway, thanks guys for fixing the Lightscribe installation issue. It works just fine now.

I'm wondering if I had turned off UAC altogether would it have worked in my regular Admin-status user account?

what i meant is to right click the msi and click on run as admin
what i did to the msi is delete the condition needed to install....
(in this case the condition check if you are an AdminUser...)


as for the name issue i think you were a little too late...lol
i explained it already here already...

That's just what I am trying to explain...it isn't possible to right-click a .msi file and "run as administrator", there is no such option offered by windows. I have posted that at least 3 times already.

Windows only allows .exe files to be "run as administrator".

Anyway, it's irrelevant now as I got it installed, but I just want you to be clear on that for future reference. "Run as Administrator" is NOT an option when right-clicking a .msi file.

Thanks again.

yes i questioned that too and this was megafixers anwser...

----------if you dont want an explanation as to what megafixer did dont read----------

so basically he made it so that even the OS gave the lightscribe installer an unexepected os code it will still run...

but much to my amazement it runs even with no .ini (so the the "SupressWrongOS=N" isnt required...)
i believe that it has to do in the msi since it specfies versionnt 500 (windows 2000) 502(xp) or higer than 601 (which im guessing Windows 7)
