    In an elevated command prompt, type the command below, and post back with it's contents to see what it shows at the status of your built-in "Administrator" account.

    WMIC USERACCOUNT LIST FULL

    The first section in the top screenshot shows that your built-in Administrator account is still disabled. That would be why it's not showing up on the sign in screen.

    It looks like it was a language difference. Try this command below for Option One in an elevated command prompt instead.

    net user Administrateur /active:yes

    Birza,

    You're getting your images uploaded ok, but you are forgetting to attach them afterwards.

    It shows that you have successfully enabled your built-in "Administrator" account now.

    I'm not sure why the program will still not install though.

    Birza,

    I'm glad to hear that you got it sorted, but something is wrong with your installation or the program if you had to create that account to make it work.
