I have the exact same problem as Summersusa:
At the ADE download page, I select "Launch" and receive this dialogue box: "You may not have the necessary permission to use all the features of the program you are about to run. You may run this program as a different user or continue to run program as current user." I select "Current User" and receive the following dialogue box from ADE Setup: "This installer requires administrative access" then "Unable to elevate to administrative rights, error 6" As for the option to run the program as the "Administrator" it will not accept a password because I never created a password.
I am a firsttime user of ADE,so never installed anything before. I'm using a laptop/windows 7. Please help!
This is a Windows 7 error message, and really has to do with the way
Windows 7 security handles attempts to install programs. I'm not a Win 7
guy, so I can't walk you through the process. I can say that you'll need
to set Win 7 security to interact with Adobe's website in order to get ADE
downloaded and installed.
Thank you!! I can install it now!
