Windows 10: Software installer must run as administrator or there is a problem

    Software installer must run as administrator or there is a problem


    My computer has only one account and it's an administrator account. I have UAC disabled.

    If I want to install something, I must run it as administrator or it pops a window says "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package.A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run..."

    I did some research, some say that should add administrator right to TEMP folder which I already have.

    Any solution to this?
