Gain Admin Rights for MSI File?

  1. #11


    Windows Installer packages doesn't need manual "Run as Administrator" elevation. MSIEXEC is already an administrator component that'll only operate if you're using an account with administrator rights.

    That said, the UAC dialog box should show you the option to type the administrator password, if you're using a standard, limited-access account.

    Where is the Administrator ?

    Hacking is possible But not through this forum.

    I suggest reinstalling the OS.{Which might annoy the Administrator.}

    If you choose to reinstall, you can get help here with an ISO.
