I am running a single user install of ACT! by Sage 2010 Version 12.0.409.0, Hotfix 3 on my home PC and have been notified that there is an update available. However, when I click on the link in t6he balloon to downlad, I get the following error messge:
"You do not have permission to download the updates. You must be a Windows Administrator."
According to Windows (Windows 7) my account is an administrator account. Not suree why ACT doesn't recognize this. Is there a setting either in ACT or Windows that I need to adjust to get this functiionality?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I've encountered the same problem. I have Vista and I've right clicked the icon, clicked 'run as administrator' with no success. I also followed your other instructions and verified that the database I'm trying to restore is unlocked. Any other ideas?

Hello Wendy N,
Welcome to the Act! Online Community!
Can you give some more detail to the issue you are having? This post is about not being able to install an Act! update but you mention that you are attempting to restore a database. Are you attempting to install an Act! program update or update your database after updating the program?
If you are attempting to update a database and are receiving a message that you are not an administrator, that may refere to the level of authority you have within the Act! database.
