Install in User Account or Admin Account?

Recommended Posts

Hi. I started with the free version, installed it to my User Account. Every time I booted up I had to go through the whole process again as if I had just installed it, clicking all the options about entering email, allowing data to be sent etc... Also, once the program started I could update from inside it, but there was always a "pop up" thing in the bottom corner of my screen saying there was an update available but every time I tried to update that way it said I had to do it through my Admin account. Should I have installed it into my Admin account?

I've since uninstalled (used the SAS uninstaller after doing the regular windows uninstall)and am going to reinstall the Pro version which I bought and want to make sure which account I should install to.

TIA

You should be signed on under an account that has full administrative privileges and into your Admin account

Thanks. I had already installed last night and just saw your post now.

I installed from my user account (without right clicking > Run as Admin) and it seems to have gone into the Admin account and is working in my user account. So I must have given myself enough control to do that.

I am no longer having issues with my install. I think windows didn't complete the install last time around.
