system administrator policies prevent installation

Posted: 11-25-2008, 12:55 AM
New to Vista, and I get an installer error that states "The system
administrator has set policies to prevent this installation". How do I
change policies to allow installation of other software?

Hello,

- What edition of Vista are you using?
- Are you joined to a domain?

I am running Vista Home Premium, not joined to a domain.

I since have found out that if I go to users in the control panel and then
deactivate User Account Control, the issue disappears.

Thanks for your questions.

I'll remember that also. If I am logged in as the admin, isn't that good
enough?

Yes, if you are running as the Administrator, you should be able to install
new software. With UAC on a pop-up will ask for Administrator permission. If
you’re signed in as Administrator all you need to do is mouse click Yes or
Enter in most cases. With some old software that was designed for XP or even
Win 98 you may find it better to install the software using the Program
Compatibility Wizard. More information on this and UAC can be found in the
Start Menu > Help and Support. Also, Vista may have a problem with older
(crummy) software.

Overall, UAC should be turned back on for better system security, especially
if you’re sharing the computer with others, such as family.
