I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Which program?
what kind of installer (EXE/MSI/...)?
Win7 32bit or 64bit?
Did you try to disable UAC?
Did you try to run with builtin administrator?

I thought Ultimate was an extension of Pro, not Home. What application is this?  Is the operating system 32-bit or 64-bit?  .... Thinkpads_User

ycguy1117  - builtin adminstrator is disabled and should not be enabled. Make sure your own userid is a member of the administrators group. It probably is. ... Thinkpads_User

It is a scanning program, was 32 bit transferred from XP machine to Win 7 machine using PC Mover software.  Application did not work, tried to remove and install 64bit drivers.  docketport 687.  Small foot print scanner used for scanning insurance cards in medical office.  Sorry Windows Home Premium.

PC Mover can move stuff, but does not look after compliancy (as far as I can see). Legacy scanners often do not work with Windows 7 (I have one).

Try to do a System Restore to a prior point to eliminate the driver. .... Thinkpads_User
