Hi, I am logger in as Administrator on my Windows 7 machine and trying to Launch an Installer for Office 2007 but it is saying I can't launch because I need to be an Administrator. I\ve gone through all the account settings and I am definitely logged in as Administrator, but it still won't allow me to launch this program. Any thoughts?:confused:

Is it an original Office CD?

What version of Windows 7?

What is the exact wording of the error message?

It's a backup disk but I have all original Product Licence Keys etc. It`s worked in the past on my older computer running XP, and I am trying to now install it on my new computer running Win 7.

When I click "Launcher" I get a small window/box that opens that says "Can't Run" at the top. And then inside the box is reads `You must be an Administrator to install Office 2007`. (FYI: I haven`t had any problems installing any other programs or updates as administrator.)

Windows 7 Version is 6.1 Build 7600

I do have a Trial Version of Office 2010 running. Should I uninstall that first?

Yes; don't know if that has anything to do with the problem, but may as well get rid of it if you are not going to buy Office 2010.

Have you tried right-clicking the setup launcher and selecting "run as administrator"?

Even in an administrator account will full rights, some programs refuse to run if you don't click that option.
