Windows vista prompt "You must be logged in with administrator privilege..."
Posted on 2007-03-27
I have windows vista x64 ultimate. I 've been trying to run a BIOS update program for my HP laptop but unsuccessful. It keeps prompting me "You must be logged in with administrator privilege in order to update the system BIOS..." I am an advanced user and I am positive to my best knowledge I am logged in as an admin.
- I logged in using the built-in admin account (yes it was disable by default but I enabled it and logged in using it)
- I tried "Run as administrator"
- I tried to change the exe properties > compatibilities to "Run as administrator"
NONE WORKED. I am out of tricks and ready to award 500p to expert who can help me solve this
I got a workaround (use old win XP)...but still want to know why !!!
