    Cannot install program Win 8.1 x64


    Cannot install program even though running as administrator error message keeps on saying I am not running it as administrator but I definitely am. How do I fix this please?

    Have tried compatibility as well as clicking on properties and clicking on run as administrator.

    Hey Lesly,

    You might also see if you may be able to install the program while signed in to the built-in elevated Administrator account.

    Hope this helps.

    What program is this?

    Is there a newer version of the program available?

    It's a web design program that was written for Windows 8 and they've not updated it yet. Will use it on my Windows 7 machine...

    You might also report the problem you are having with the program to the developer to hopefully help get a newer version quicker.

    I have done that and did not meet with great enthusiasm.... I am now going to buy another programme that is compatible! It works on my Windows 7 pc but I need something that will work on 8.1 as I have now embraced it wholly.

    That's to bad the developer isn't enthused about updating it.
