No EDIT For Trusted Installer / Administrator Permission

Aug 26, 2013

I have followed the instructions from the Windows 7 forum on changing the owner/permissions for a file from Trusted Installer to Administrator but cannot see an EDIT button. I am trying to delete files associated with the Delta Search malware which was detected and deactivated by Malwarebytes.

Edit File Details - Requires (User) Own Permission

Dec 9, 2012

What I am trying to do is sort my favorites for the IE10 app. So far there seems to be no way to manually arrange the favorites so what I tried to do was change the sort in the favorites folder under C/USERS/myname etc. I was going to add a 1 to the detail tab in the file properties but I get an error message reading "You need to provide administrator permission to apply properties to this file." If I select continue the message reads "You need permission to perform this action" "You require permission from MEMe to make changes to this file"

I am the only user and set up as the system administrator. I have tried completely disabling UAC and installed "Take Ownsership" Nothing has allowed me to do this. Now my problem is there is no reason why I can't add a 1 to the detail description to a file for sorting. What harm could possibly come from editing that field. Most importantly, if I am the system administrator why am I fighting for permission from myself?

Administrator Permission To Delete Folder

Sep 17, 2013

I have a game file that I have deleted/modified many, many times with no problem and now it seems I don't have permission to do so.

I used information from Take Ownership of a File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 8 to add the convenient "Take Ownership" option for files and I have ownership of the file in question.

It shows that I have "Full Control" over the file.

But when I try to delete the file I get:

When I click "Try Again" I get:

why I lost permission to do this all of the sudden and how do I make sure it doesn't happen again?

Grant Permission To Administrator Over System Files?

Aug 2, 2014

I've always loved the older version of Microsoft Windows Paint for Windows XP edition.

After some research, I learned that I could download that older version and replace it with the one I had on Windows 8.1 At first, I tried to replace it in the system32 folder, but it said,

"You do not have permission to perform this action. You require permission from TrustedInstaller." After researching the internet, I learned step by step tutorial on how to change the owner which was TrustedInstaller; learned how to grant permission to me; the administrator over the system files. It has been said, "You should be able to access that particular file or folder. Be careful when you alter the permission for System file or folder it may cause serious damage to your system and compromise security. So please create a system restore point[/URL] first and then proceed with caution."

My question is.....can granting full control to the administrator over system32 folder cause problems or issues? Is this wise to do?

If not, I revert back to granting permission to TrustedInstaller over system32 folder.

All I wanted was to replace mspaint.exe with an older version from Windows XP edition.

Unable To Edit Hosts File Due To Administrator Rights?

Jun 15, 2014

I am getting error "Save failed - Please check if this file is opened in another program" when trying to edit the hosts file in Notepad++. This has only started happening after a fresh installation of Windows 8 on a new computer. My previous computer with Windows 8.1 was able to do it correctly without any errors. I am using only one account on both computers, but for some reason on the new computer, the UAC keeps getting in the way. I have lowered the UAC warnings all the way down but that hasn't worked. Is there another setting I'm missing?

Note that I don't want to right-click Notepad++ and choose "Run as administrator" every time I want to edit a system file. I see that as a waste of time and an unnecessary step since I am already using an administrator account. I didn't have to do that on the old computer.

Can't Download EXE File - Provide Administrator Permission To Copy To This Folder

Jun 10, 2014

I'm running Windows 8.1 (standard/ home edition) and can't download a couple .exe files. I get "You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy to this folder". errors. I'm the only user on this computer and have administrator access.

The file resides on mediafire and via my ipad I was able to manage to transfer it to dropbox, but I still get the same error. The filename (partial) is created but no further downloading is done.

I can't take ownership of the file-- it doesn't exist on my computer yet.
I can't change the local security policy (I understand this is only available in Win 8 Pro version).
UAC is already disabled as much as I can figure (via the slider set to never notify).

Short of setting up a super admin account (would this even work?)

Cannot Run .msi File (installer)

Dec 25, 2013

When I download software onto my Windows 8, often there is an .msi file to install the application. When I double-click on the .msi file, I get an error "Error while Opening File". This occurs on various software packages, so is just not a bad download.

When I click "OK" to this error message, I get a big green button on the screen, with "Download" in big letters, and "ilivid" in smaller characters.

I did mistakingly download the ilivid app onto my PC (once again a big green button on a download site that I thought was the download link to the file I wanted, however I uninstalled it once I read some articles online about it, also ran Malwarebytes to check for malware.

Do I need to re-associate the .msi files with the Windows Installer?

Windows 8 And SDK Installer

Aug 31, 2012

I installed windows 8 and JDK 7 without problems but when i go to install the android SDK tools the installer says to me that can't find Java SE Development Kit.

I downloaded the right version of JDK. Simply the SDK installer can't find C:windowssystem32java.exe when in fact the file is in that folder.

I go to set an environment variable Java_home that point to Java.exe but does not work.

NET Framework 3.5 Offline Installer For Windows 8?

Apr 11, 2013

After installing Windows 8 in most cases you have to install .Net Framework 3.5 to be able to install or run some 3rd party application. Recently while browsing the internet I came across an offline installer; one that worked perfectly and was very easy to use.

Error Decompressing Data - Corrupted Installer?

Jan 8, 2014

I recently purchased Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2 (2 disk set). I have the first one installed but I get the error message- "Error decompressing data. Corrupted installer?" when I get to models.bif during the installation. I am currently using windows 8 (obviously) but the recommended specs for the games say windows 7. I do not know if this would effect the installation, if so is there a way for me to get windows 7?

Apps / Software :: Windows Installer Hangs - Not Working At All

Mar 23, 2014

Since a few weeks for some reason I cannot access some programs (like MS Word), it just says that "the operating system is not presently configured to run this application". It doesn't show up as a registry item either same as some other programs.

Now my problem is that I cannot install a new version, nor openoffice, or anything else for that matter that uses windows installer.

I've checked if the service and subservice was running and they were, I've tried SFC /scannow and Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth but they both didn't fix the problem ( did fix some corruptions though).

What happens with the installer is basically it doesn't do anything. It just sits at initializing forever and doesn't install anything at all. Currently cannot install any programs but don't want to reinstall windows since I have a lot of programs and settings I don't want to lose.

Apps / Software :: 3rd Party Installer Failure Due To Lack Of Privileges

May 4, 2013

I have had installer failure for Hp printer software and windows live mail even though signed in as administrator and running the programs as administrator; the failure is the same for both, that is " failure due to lack of privileges to write to C:program dataMicrosoft windowsstart menu".

I have gone to the files and changed permission from read only several times and had it change right back to read only as soon as I closed explorer.

I have gone into uac and disabled notification but it has no effects, and Windows 8 apps still seem to work anyway' so I reset uac to normal level again.

This all seemed to start after a win update, but doing a system restore has not worked either.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Installer Opens Up 2 Tabs In Browser

Apr 27, 2014

When I get to the part in the Windows 8 installer that it tells me what needs to come to my attention, instead of opening a little browser inside of the program as I guess it's trying to do, it opens up 2 tabs in whatever browser is my default. This would be fine if the buttons in the web pages still modified the actual installer, but they don't and therefore the installer is effectively stopped.

I'm trying to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8. Key word: Upgrade. I would like to avoid re-installing the OS altogether, but I can do that by myself if it comes to that.

Here's what it looks like:

I read on another thread that making IE the default would fix it, but I tried that and it did not work.

Windows 8 - Need Admin Permission After Upgrade

Dec 15, 2012

I'm stuck. I ran Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant prior to installing Win 8. According to the report I needed to delete Intel(R) Pro Network Connection 12.1.12, which I did.

I upgraded to Win 8 but now I have no permissions. I'll looked at all the threads about opening a cmd windows, which I can, but since I logon to the O/S with just user level permissions I can't issue any admin level apps. I can't even navigate to my C: drive. I get 'Access is denied'.

I'm tried right-clicking on the Command Prompt and 'Run as Administrator', nothing. Which makes sense since I'm logon on with only User rights.

I need full admin rights. I can't update my HOSTS file which really screws up my FTP and Telnet sessions.

I cannot logon as administrator, so I can't change anything. Should I reinstall??

Losing Permission To Registry Entries?

May 29, 2014

I support an older piece of software(vb) and am running into a lot of issues on windows 8 not seen on windows 7.

Our software installs some setting etc hkeylocalmachine >software>wow3264>our program>folders etc>>>

One of the issues is some machines seem to randomly lose their data values or revert to an older value(for example a data folder will switch from the network to the default location. Another example is a license code being deemed expired. Often a perfectly valid license will no longer be valid. The user is prompted to enter a code. If I enter a new code it still says expired. The fix ive used which is annoying is running the program as admin and applying the license code- Normally if the user then opens the program as the user after this it will work but they will again lose the value.

Always running as admin is not really a fix because then user cant see their printers or mapped drives in windows 8. And that is something I am not really supposed to support too often. They don't want me to be their tech support.

how this is happening, is it UAC? My guess is when the user installs it asks for admin, the users clicks ok and it installs. But then I dont understand why it works for a while and then quits.
