Wow! 685 views and still no one with an answer to my problem...
I looked at my setting and they are the same as they have always been: exactly like yours!
Vikrant's suggestion is great , however if it doesn't work then run the Indesign with the Win XP SP3 Compatability Mode and then check,

It explains the details from Manish's reply, and will atleast get you working.
But this has to do something with the user account. I think that you should check that your account has sufficient privileges that let the software make changes to system files on disc. For example, make sure that the account you're signed into is part of the Administrators group.
Btw, does this also happen with other software as well, or is it just InDesign CS6?
- I doubt CS6 qualifies as an "older program" that needs to run in XP mode. I set it to run automatically with "as Administrator," so it works. But not as it should (as I described above).
- I am the only user and have full administrator privileges.
- The only other programs I have trouble with are those in the CS6 suite (Illustrator & Photoshop).
- All of the above app;lies to both my 32-bit Win 7 computers.
When I run in "Win XP SP3 Compatability Mode," I get a pop-up screen asking if I want to allow the program to write to drive C: (the same as when I run it "as administrator"). Let's say I go ahead and the program opens, what do I check for? And when I am done, is there a way to undo this so I can continue to "run as administrator" as before, in case things get messed up?
Sorry to be ignorant, but this compatibility mode thing is new to me...
