    Yes, you could able to install this windows application in your Laptop. Some Software always Prompts for Administrative Privileges while installing it. You can sort out this problem by using the following steps,
    1. Just Right Click the file you want to Install and you could see the list of Options.
    2. Select Run as Administrator from the list of Options.
    3. It will Prompt you whether it can run this application. Just select Yes and Go Ahead.
    Else, in some cases it will prompt you to enter the Password of the Admin in this system if the admin in this system have set some password for it. So, if you are an admin in your system, you can enter the password you set for your system. Else, ask the admin of the system to Enter the password and Go Ahead.
    4. Now, you can Successfully Install the Necessary Software in you System.
    That’s it.

    Dear friend,

    If you are experiencing this problem, then you can recover from this problem very easily.

    Right-click on the Software which you want to install.

    Then, choose option "Run as Administrator".

    After that Windows will ask you to whether it can run this application. Just select Yes and Go ahead.

    In some cases, you will be asked to Enter Password of the Administrator User.

    Just enter the password and go ahead.

    Now, you can easily install your required software.

    if you are in user mode then right click on the application and select "run as administration" then it will prompt for password to run....
    else if you are unable to run the application then
    open command prompt as administration now it will open with path as system32> then direct to the location of that application ...
    and run the application....

    Hey friend,

    This is a common error occurs due to the need of administrative privilege .
    -To solve this you should login by the administrator account or you should have administrative privilege .
    -now once your account have administrative privilege then right click on the application setup file and click on RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.
    now your application will be installed without any problem.

    to fix this issue you need to login as the administrator for that


    first press windows key +L and then click on the switch user


    and the open the administrator account and ..... then install the program whatever you want

    or

    in the standard user mode ...right click on the file ( on which you want to install )

    then choose the Run as administrator option from the pop up

    then enter the administrator password to install the program.......................ALL THE BEST
