If you right click on the Installer and select Run as Administrator, and then it will not install, it may not be compatible with Windows 7.

In Windows 7, UAC is in Control Panel, User Accounts. It should not be disabled. If you do temporarily disable to try to install your program, re-enable it after.

You slide it to the bottom to turn it off. Do so only as a temporary measure, however.

That wasn't really what I wanted to hear but I believe it to be accurate.  :-)
