I am in the process of reinstalling Fortis Blue document managment software on a Windows Server 2008 computer and one of the installation steps requires entering the account credentials for a local user that is a member of the local admin group.  When I select an account that meets that criteria, theFortis software installer rejects and says "the account must be a member of the local admin group."  I have created several local admin accounts and none of them will satisfy the software installer.  Any thoughts or observations will be appreciated.
