Unable to install 9810 OS 7.1 software on my Win7 pc...

I am unable to install the OS 7.1 software on my Windows 7 pc. 


I get the following message about half way through the install:


Error 1303: The installer has insuffcient privileges to access this directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research in Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9810Asia_v7.1.0.428_P5.1.0.338\Java. The installation cannot continue. Log on as an administrator or contact your system administrator.


I AM logged on as an administrator.


Thanks in advance.

Hi VideoFrog,


Can you please verify that you are logged into a Windows® user account with local administrative privileges? If you are, could you please verify that User Account Control is turned off and that there is no anti-virus software or script blocking software that could be blocking the installation?


Hope this helps.
