Hello Sally,

You might see if right clicking on the program's installation file and clicking on Run as administrator may allow you to install it afterwards.

When a program requires elevation to install, then you sometimes have to do this to allow it to run elevated (aka: run as administrator).

Hope this helps,
Shawn

In that case, see if enabling the built-in Administrator account and logging on to it may allow you to install it.

No problem. It's not to hard though. If you like, you would click on the link above for how to enable the built-in Administrator account. Once enabled, log on to it. Hopefully, you will now be able to install the program. If so, then you can log out, and log back into your normal account.
