How can I get administrator rights under Windows Vista or Windows 7?

June 6, 2014

On some systems, but especially under Windows Vista and Windows 7, ATLAS.ti might tell you that you are not authorized to perform some actions (update, change the user database) since they require administrator rights.

You can solve this as follows:

  • *Right-click* the ATLAS.ti entry in your start menu (or your ATLAS.ti desktop icoin) instead of just left-clicking to start it.
  • Select “Run as administrator” from the context menu.
  • Supply the administrator password for this computer.

If you are already logged in on your computer with administrator rights, ATLAS.ti should now directly start up and you can perform the desired action.

If you don’t have admin rights and/or you’re not sure how to obtain administrator status on your Windows systems, you will need to seek assistance from a knowledgeable local source.
