Running A Msi File As Administrator


I am installing a msi on windows 7 from a user account. It doesn't get installed properly since it don't have administrator rights. I want to run my msi as administrator. What changes should i make in the msi? How should i make them. I don't want to write another program to run my msi like using shell-execute. I don't want to use command prompt also. I just want to change my msi so that when i double click on it, it should run as administrator on windows 7 irrespective of the account from which i have logged on. Can we use orca tool for this problem? How can i use it.

Administrator Permission To Delete A File

I have been running as an admin (i have since set up another standard account for my daily work), and i am trying to delete a folder on my external hard-drive. It says i need an admin/everyone's permission to delete the file. I am the only user. I have tried to change the settings for my external hd to share it and grant all users full control. I cannot find a way to change the ownership of it like suggested in one thread.

How can i delete files without getting this message that i need permission, when i am running as an admin or standard user?

What Is Status.msi?

I keep getting a pop-up that says the feature you are trying to use in on a network that is unavailable. Then a popup that says wait while windows configures status, then a pop-up that says please reinstall using a valid copy of the installation package "status. Msi" then it starts this whole procedure all over again. When i reboot the same things happens. I can't get rid of this. I don't know what program to reinstall that will get rid of this problem. I am not on a network. The only thing that is used in conjunction with another used is the router and modem.

Msi Installer For Adobe Program Fails

I am having problems installing a new adobe program (creative suite 5) on my windows 7 x 64 computer and the installation logs plus some testing i have done point to a failing msi in the deployment package. I've written on the adobe forum and am trying to get tech support, but wonder if in the meanwhile, there is anything i can do about the msi to fix it?

The msi is named: microsoft_vc80_crt_x86_x64. One remedy for installation problems on the adobe forum was to run each msi separately, then repair by right-click, then uninstall. After this, it seemed to help. So, i tried (first 3 worked ok) and came across the above noted msi: when i ran it failed and would not complete. The 1935 error message: hresult 0x80073712 and the (apparently essential) component that it is failing to install: 844efba7-1c24-93b2-a01f-c8b3b9a1e8e.

I checked that all installer permissions are set ok. My installer version is 5, which seems ok. This non-networked computer is used by me, so i am the administrator with admin rights. I also tried the same installer in another, separate adobe package, and the same failure occurred. Is there anything i can do to get this installer to complete properly, install the component?

.msi Installation Directory Must Be On A Local Hard Drive

Every time i try to run a particular . Msi i get this. "Installation directory must be on a local hard drive". Its not the msi as ive tested it on another computer. The msi is a plug-in tool called t-splines by autodesk. Ive also tried older versions with the same error, things i've tried so far:

Sys restore
Safe mode
Right click - take ownership

I uninstalled 7zip which i already had, then reinstalled with the . Msi from the website to test if it was all msi, however it actually worked. I was looking around for other . Msi install software just to test it but can't find any. If you could point me in the direction of some . Msi files which i can test on my rig. Edit, just tried a few other msi's i had on my computer and i get the error 1723.

Error - Admin Policy Is Set To Not Allow To Install .msi Programs

Can't install programs (. Msi?), And the error message says that it's because the admin policy is set to not allow it. But i'm the admin, i've recently installed windows 7, and, as the title says, there are some programs i can't install. What i've noticed is that they are "msi" files (i think) - don't know if this means anything or not. I get an error message (red "x") that says that the system admin doesn't allow such a file to be installed, but i'm the sys admin. I took a gander at the admin tools (control panel), but i don't understand most of what's there.

Msi 780-g65 Motherboard Problem On Win 7 64-bit

I have been having issues with a motherboard, that was only showing up after i installed windows 7 pr 64 bit. I dual booted with xp pro 32 bit. The motherboard is a msi 780-g65 and has a phenom ii x4 965 be and 8 gb ddr3 ram. I seemed to be going fine for a while when i only had xp pro on it. I am not exactly sure what my technician said the problem was, they just changed out the motherboard (i then rma'd the bad one). Thank goodness i did buy another board, now it is under warranty. Let's hope they'll honor the warranty. I have decided to make sure my room is real cool and that this time all the fans are working. I think it may have been over heated, which is their fault. I asked to plug in the fands and use this lcd controller i bought from them. Does anyone know, or is there any intel on this sort of thing? I know this is a software forum, but i can't seem to find anything specific about the motherboards interactions with the os. I am looking to msi, but, you know how manufacturers can be.

*.msi Not A Valid Win32 Application Error When Installing A Security Program

Whenever i try and install a security program i get the following: "*. Msi not a valid win 32 application". Noboby seems able to help. Vendors are all blaming another vendor. Meanwhile, i do not have any security on my computer. I am not terribly computer literate so please bear with me. I have rolled back, tried to run as an administrator, have downloaded software umpteen times (to satisfy vendors). This has something to do with microsoft installers. Anyone else had this problem?

Live File System Will Not Save File

Live file system will not save file!Windows 7 and udf will copy several files and then you get to the last file which is 700 meg and the space free bar under the dvd rw drive shows 1. 2 gig left. The copy starts and runs till about 350 meg left then it slows down all the way to 17 kbs and also till 10 k was left on the dvd. By this time about 5 hrs have gone by and the copy window has showed 1 hr left for 3 hrs. The cancel button won't work task manager when used will crash the system. You can force a shut down but then you have to reactivate norton with your purchase code. A search of the internet for me was no help at all.

How Do I Open A File As A Zip File?

I work with an application that packages files into "zipped folders" (yeah, just zip files), but uses a different file extension. It works exactly like . Gadget (windows gadgets) and . Themepack (windows themes) files work: you can rename them to .zip and open them with the zip viewer.

I want to skip the step of renaming it each time. I want to just associate the files with the zip viewer. In fact i don't need to associate it, just open-with a single time: i know if i can do it once, it will always be an available option on the right-click context menu of the files.

But i can't find which program is associated with zip files. I tried searching the system-32 folder.

Login As Administrator

I have had a few programs that have asked me to log in as administrator which you think being the only log in i would be but apparently on some programs i don't have the right. I found this:

Click start
- Type: cmd
- Right-click cmd and click run as administrator
- Type: net user administrator /active:yes (notice there is a space between the word "administrator" and the "forward slash"
- Press enter
- Exit
- Restart windows and you will be given the opportunity to log on as administrator. Is there any other way around it?

Administrator Disabled

My administrator account was disabled and i have the same problem as rodek. The only difference is that i did not disabled administrator - i don't know how it happened. Now i am not able to make any changes to my computer.

I had administrator enabled via local security policy. After installing the programs, i disabled the administrator via cmd.exe "net user administrator /active:no". Now i want to install some additional programs and i cannot enable the administrator login because the uac settings do not allow me to turn the admin on. In the command prompt, it says "type administrator password and then click yes. " But when i type the password the "yes" button remains gray and i cannot click it, so it does not allow me to login as admin, so i'm stuck only able to login as a user, but not the admin. I know the admin password and have not forgotten it.

No Administrator Privileges

I just bought a new toshiba laptop today, and set it up. Everything seemed to go smoothly, until i tried to delete the one of the silly desktop shortcuts that was pre-installed by toshiba. Then user account control took over and said that i needed to be logged in as the administrator to do this. It said that i have to type a password and click yes, or no. There is no space to enter a password, and the 'yes' box is disabled. My only choice is to click the 'no' and go back to the drawing board.

The same happens when i tried to install adobe flash player. I also tried to change my account (which is marked as a 'standard account' into an administrator one, but the same message occurs. This is very frustrating, what use is a computer if i can't delete or install the programmes i want to use?!

Cannot Understand Who The Administrator Is?

I never shut my pc down, i always leave it on. This pc i have had for 4 weeks. Tonight i went to make changes to audio recorder and selected troubleshoot audio recordings.

It then darkens the screen and tells me to type in administrator password and then click yes.
I thought i was admin? I thought when i switched off my pc and switched it back on again that that was the password i was being asked to enter and so i thought i knew it.

But when i try to do this troubleshoot it comes up no response, i have also tried just hitting enter but  both do nothing and just send me back to the original screen.

How do i find out who the admin is on my own pc?
When i login when powering up what is this password?
Where will get my admin password from?

Activating Administrator

I used the transfer utility to transfer my credentials from a windows business laptop to a brand new laptop with windows home premium on it. When i got to windows hp i found out that my account was a standard account instead of an administrators account - even through the account says administrator type when i drilled down it was set to standard and would not allow me to change it. Looking at some of the other threads i tried a number of things and this is what i found to work below for me.

Signed on to my account
Went to the windows/system32 directory and found cmd.exe
Highlighted the file name and right clicked
Chose run as administrator from the menu
Double clicked on the file
The command window opened
Typed in net user administrator /active:yes
Closed the command window
Rebooted

The administrator now show up on the welcome window i tried the windows key and r - which did not work. When i tried to type lusrmgr. Msc i got the message that this was not supported in home premium my question is was this because my transferred account was an administrator's account to begin with? Or was this fluke that i managed this - the administrators account when activated does not have a password on it and i'm assuming that i should create one - but i'm not sure what will do after the fact to windows utilities and the like. Anyone?

Administrator Without Authority

I am running windows 7 home premium and am generally very pleased with it however i have run into a problem this morning. I am the owner, administrator, and sole user of this computer. This morning i was trying to modify the hosts file but when i tried to save the modification i received the following error message:
 
C:/windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts.txt
You don't have permission to save in this location.
Contact the administrator to obtain permission.
 
Well i contacted myself immediately but i could not help me. I am hoping that one of you kind people will be able to provide me with some guidance.

Cannot Download As Administrator

We received two brand new hp6241f pcs running windows 7 from future shop here in canada. I got home tonight from work and found my dad still sitting in front of the first, trying to get it set up. At that point he was trying to activate the 60-day ms office trial but every time he clicked the link to get a key he'd get a message saying he wasn't connected to the internet. I confirmed that he was; we can totally surf.

I found another way of getting the key but kept getting redirected to a bing page that said "we are unable to find [url]. "

I tried a few times, figured it was a bad link and decided to move on. I went to download windows live mail.

Same stupid thing. The download page would load, the download would be about to begin and the redirect would happen again.

I've tried downloading firefox and ccleaner - same problem.

I've browsed forum after forum and answer after answer. There's only one user and she's identified as administrator.

I played with security settings up the yin/yang. I do hi-speed internet technical support for a living so i can easily disable common stuff. I followed some instructions to make changes of the user controls but full control is already enabled.

I'm at my wits end and hating win7. There are too damn many security options, if you ask me. Too many to find, apparently, because nothing i've done is working.
