Windows 7: Admin/permission help for software install plz

Admin/permission help for software install plz

Hi. I'm stuck trying to activate PowerDVD. I keep getting a 'you need administrative permission' result window. This window pops up after entering the activation code. I've tried all the limited tricks I know of. I enable the hidden admin account and logged in and tried it that way. I used the right click on activate.exe and 'run as admin' method. Same for 'Take Ownership'. I also changed the UAC to it's lowest settings (basically off). None of these methods has worked so far.
I think I'm missing something simple but I just don't know what it could be. Haven't had this particular problem before. If someone has a suggestion that I haven't tried or doing something different that I have tried, that would be sweet! Thanks!

Rusty

Run the program as admin by rightclicking and selecting that. If that doesnt work, uninstall and re-install.

thanks for the replies. I finally got it working, though actually none of the suggestions worked. But now I at least know about the 'troubleshoot compatibility' option! What finally worked was uninstalling, unticked the disable admin option, logging in that way and installing from that account (Administrative). Admins, please mark this thread as solved and again thanks for the suggestions.
