Hi
I am having a problem when installing Privacy Keyboard
Its extension is .MSI
Its showing an error message "You do not have sufficient privileges to access system services".
The problem is: I cannot see the option "Run as Administrator" for .msi extension

When you right click on the .msi file, there is no option to run as administrator? Then you need to be logged in with an account that has admin privileges.

No, Microsoft installers can not be run as an administrator (normally). I had this problem a while back when trying to install a program. It seems to require a registry modification (that I cannot guarantee works, as that program never did work; but that is likely due to other reasons).

Thanks, I can see the option now but still I get the same error message :
Service 'PrivacyKeyboard Kernal Service' (Error: 0x2) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient previleges to start system services.

I cannot run as an administrator only for .MSI extension files.
I am using Windows 7.

It still goes back to the question of whether or not you have administrative privs on the system. Do you?
