Software/Versions Affected:

In order to install the program with the Microsoft NT (4.0), 2000, and XP, you must be Administrator on your machine. To check if you are Administrator, do the following:

  • Go to Start,  Settings, Control Panel, Users and Passwords. 
  • Find the current username (yours) and look in the group column. It should say: Administrators
  • If the current username does NOT say Administrators, contact your IP department to become Administrator, or to have someone with Administrator privileges install the program on the machine.
  • Microsoft Windows 7: if you are installing COMFEN on a computer with MS Windows 7, you may need to right click on the installation program (in Explorer) and say "Run as Administrator" in order to install the program.
