AutoIt Install

Recommended Posts

When I try to install AutoIt from the download I receive the message "Error! You must have administrator rights to install this package."

The message is coming from the install program, not from my PC.

Anybody know how to avoid this?

This looks like a powerful program!

Thanks.

So you're the admin on your PC?... I've never seen it before.

Some advice... When asking for help, or anything like what you've posted. Try to explain in detail what you've done step by step, what OS you are on, what permissions you have, and any other pertinent information you feel may apply to the current situation.


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

I'm on XP SP 2. Can't install the AutoIt download because of this error. Why should it check for admin rights?

I do all our departmental programming but am not one of the high priests in the data center.

I hoped someone had a version which skipped that step.

The installer cannot write to the HKLM hive as for not having admin privilages. That is a limitation of Window rights and security.
