Troubleshooting

If Windows User Account Control appears

As you're installing, Windows User Account Control may appear and ask you for permission to install. If you don't have administration rights (for example, at your place of work), you'll need to ask for help from the system administrator. This is the person or department in charge of managing computers and IT.
