I appreciate the response - but as I posted at the end of the post that contained this set of instructions - it would be safe to presume that I followed them. As I still had a question/problem I posted for an answer if it was possible. There are a couple of anomilies with these instructions as I have commented in bold.



7) Select the Windows XP option from the drop-down list.
THE ONLY XP OPTION AVAILABLE TO ME IS (service Pack 2 & Service Pack 3 - I chose Service Pack 2


The rest of the instructions were followed as advised.

I installed from the user account and from the admin account.
I have Win 7 64 bit Ultimate

I want to get rid of the programme asking for admin password when loaded.

Have you any ideas - I have tried uninstalling via control panel and reinstalling with differing options.

Glenn,

Unless you have some fairly restrictive security settings configured for your user profiles, changing the installation directory in step 13 and then running it as the Administrator the first time should prevent Win7 from asking for credentials in future instances.

thanks

I have a clean (default) install win 7 ultimate 64. Mayabe I didnt run it as admin first time round - i'm sure i did, but maybe i didn't. so does this mean it will be passoworded for ever more?

I obviously won't be bothered re formating, and I guess I can live with it, but it would be nice if something could be rejiggered...

Well, you could completely uninstall the program and then reinstall it following that list of steps above to the letter. That should prevent it from asking for admin credentials every time you run the program.
