Hi, and Welcome to PressF1 :)

Depending upon your Vista setup, you can either just hit "OK" on the prompt for the Administrator password without entering in any details or you can enter in your username and password.

Vista handles security differently to XP (and previous MS Windows) and you will be asked for permission to install programs. This helps towards preventing viruses/trojans auto-installing without your knowledge.

Let us know how you get on.

You can right click on the installer and "Run as Administrator" or with "Admin. Rights"

That'll give the UAC a green light to let you install whatever you want.
