Issue/Introduction

The logged on user does not have local administrator rights.

 

Cause

Installing a Symantec product requires that you log on as a user with local administrator rights. The installer needs those rights in order to update the Windows Registry and to add the necessary files and folders.

 

Resolution

Note: To check if this document describes the computer in question, download and run a 'Check product install requirements' scan with SymHelp.

To solve this problem, log on as a user that has local administrator rights.
