Am administrator for a windows 7 environment running as VM ware on a mac. Getting above referenced error when trying to register some crystal DLLs. KB articles indicate this is the error you get if you don't have administrator rights, but I do have administrator rights. Appreciate any guidance.

Recall that User Account Control essentially strips an administrator account of its administrator status unless  you do a "run as"
