    Hello Stan,

    The built-in "Administrator" account is an elevated account that runs as administrator by default with full control.

    Usually when you get a "Administrator privileges required" message, it means you needed to use Run as administrator to perform your action with elevated rights.

    previously i got that message, i would log off then bak into the built-in administrator account, but that account did not have the program that i was working on when i got the "Administrator privileges required" message and gave up. Next time when i get "Administrator privileges required" message, i will try to figure out how to invoke Run as Administrator .

    thanks again
