Like the error message says, you must switch to an account with Administrative privileges to install the program. That's probably because it installs some Flash controls for its UI.

Under Windows XP Home, you can check your user account type at Control Panels -> User Accounts. You should see the text "Computer Administrator" under your administrator account name(s). Google around for similar instructions for other versions of Windows.
