when i tried to run mock test from the cd which came along with the book (K&B) its asking me for admin privileges.. even though i m able to install all softwares on my laptop why is this software asking for admin privileges. How can solve this issue..
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.
