Please right click the Extension Manager executable or its shortcut from start menu and choose “Run as Administrator” to launch Extension Manager, then installation should succeed.
Just had this exact problem trying to install the 3d materials for PhotoShop CS5 Ex.
I am also in Win 7 x64.
Right clicking the shortcut in the start menu yielded no positive outcome.
However, right clicking the start menu shortcut --> properties --> Open File Location then right clicking the actual program and running as Administrator fixed the problem.
Hope this helps further!
On my system, the ZXP extension manager suffix doesn't have a "Run as Administrator" option. After pulling out my hair I discovered I could run "Command" as administrator and get the job down that way. Here is how it works.
- Open the start menu.
- Type "CMD" in the search bar.
- Right click cmd and select Run as Administrator
- Change directory to where the installer is (in this case it's Russell Brown's Services and on my desktop)
- Run the command (e.g. CS5Services_Installer_2.3.1.zxp) by typing in its complete name.
- Voila. It works.
This worked for me too. I had to call our help desk though because I didn't know how to change the directory in the command prompt.
So, for step 4 to navigate to the directory:
in the command prompt, type cd.. to navigate out of a directory
to get into the directory type cd then a space and then the name of the directory
i.e. cd MyFolder
Once you're in the directory then just type in the complete name as steven says
