View Full Version : SkyDrive and Admin Rights

25-04-2012, 03:19 PM

I thought I'd try M$'s SkyDrive and when installing it get this error message:

"SkyDrive can't be run using full administrator rights. Please restart SkyDrive without administrator rights"

That's gotta be a first, right?

How do I get round it - I'm the only user of this computer apart from the "Administrator" that came with it?

Vista Home Premium - up to date with updates as far as I know

Mabye try install skydrive from another user which doesnt have admin rights. Or mabye its a mistype by microsoft and you should right click and run as admin.

Just an idea:-)

Thanks for the responses people.

Just as a hunch I turned on User Account Control, and hey presto, it worked! How lame is that??!!
