    I just purchased a new computer with vista on it. When I try to install my Office 2003 Pro version I get the following error message; Error Executing file, E:\ office 11-disc 1-professional\setup.exe the required operation requires elevation.
    What does this mean and what can I do?

    I believe it means you need to log on as administrator.

    Step 1. Open a command window with admin privileges. Click Vista's start button and type cmd into the Search box. Rather than pressing Enter, instead press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to open the command window with elevated privileges. If you're asked for a username and password, provide the ones that log you into your domain. On a single-user copy of Vista, a login shouldn't be necessary. (My thanks to Serdar Yegulalp for the elevation trick.).
