Hi ~Krunal,

Some software is quirky that way in that it wants to be installed by the
administrator account. How you would access it depends on whether you have
WinXP Home or Pro. In Home, that account is only available in Safe mode.
What you can do as a workaround is right click the setup file and choose
"run as", then enter the administrator name and password (if one exists).
