Microtek Scanner Software (Scanwizard) Says I Don't have Admin Privileges - but I do
Posted on 2011-10-03
I am trying to install Scanmaker software (basically the drivers for a Microtek Scanwizard 4700 scanner) on Windows XP. I have tried installing several different versions of the software, and each time am told "you don't have admin privileges." This message is generated by the Scanmaker install program, not by Windows. In fact, I do have admin privileges...I get the same error when I'm logged in as "Administrator!" I have verified that I have admin privileges by, for example, right-clicking on the Start button, and seeing "Explore all users" and "Open all users," which you don't see if you don't have admin privileges.
I have tried to install in safe mode; no difference. Anyone know what might be wrong?
