admin rights on subscriber db

I am trying to update Act 2009 to version 11.1.183.0 on my laptop(OS-Vista, remote/subscriber db) and Act informs me that I don't have admin rights, which is incorrect.  I have admin rights on my desktop and laptop.  I've done the upgrade on my desktop with no problems.  Suggestions would be appreciated.  Thank you.

If your OS is Vista or Windows 7, being the Administrator really isn't true. For full administrator privileges you would have to right click on the icon to launch ACT! and select run as administrator.

Thanks for your assistance on that question as well as a suggestion you posted about the benefits of a faster harddrive!  I had a 4200 rpm drive on the verge of failure, which I replaced with a 5400 rpm drive (couldn't find 7200 rpm IDE) and it improved performance a bit.

Re: admin rights on subscriber db

Hi, 

I wonder if you can help.

When I click on the email icon in ACT, a message comes up saying "Please ensure that both ACT and Outlook have "Run as Administrator" privileges."

 

How do I do this?

 

Appreciate your help.

 

Thanks

Chris
