"Requested operation requires elevation" msg

By novice

  1. Hello all,

    Just bought myself a notebook installed with Vista Business. Now trying to install Office Professional 2003 but it kept returning the "Requested operation requires elevation" message. I have confirmed I have administrator privileges. Don't have problems installing other software but so far not successful with Office. Any advice much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
