You are not allowed to continue because youraccount does not have the proper privileges.

  1. Default You are not allowed to continue because youraccount does not have the proper privileges.

    I have just installed Adobe Photoshop CS2 on my Windows Vista Home Laptop.

    When I try to run it, I get a message in a window titled "Adobe Activation" saying: "You are not allowed to continue because your account does not have the proper privileges. Please log in using an account with administrator privileges and try again."

    I am logged in as an administrator and have installed all my applications using the same login. Though the version I have installed is not yet registered, I am unable to even get to the registation screen as once you click OK on the dialogue, Adobe Photoshop closes.

    Could you please advise how I can get round this without opening up any security loop holes?

    > Windows Vista Home Laptop.

    If it's Home basic, you'll need to upgrade to Home Premium.

    Thanks for your reponse Bob. I am using Windows Vista Home Premium.

    Turn off UAC and try again. If that doesn't work try creating a new user
    account and use that.

    Bob. Turning off UAC would open me to many security threats. So this would probably not be a suitable solution.

    Creating another account would not be practical as all my other applications run under my current account.

    UAC is an intrusive PITA that I turned off and left off. If you really
    feel it needs to be on, then turn it off to activate and then turn it
    back on.

    If that doesn't work, then you really need to try creating a new account.

    Though this seems to work I'm not convinced turning off UAC is the best solution. But thanks for your help in this anyway Bob as at least it will get me going for now.

    ps. For those who want to know how to turn UAC off, please refer to

  8. Default Re: You are not allowed to continue because your account does not have the proper privileges.

    You are misinformed about UAC.
    UAC does nothing except issue a generic text warning box that comes on
    before every new disc access operation. It does not evaluate whether or not
    there really is a threat or give any information about what that threat may
    be. All UAC does is try to legally transfer the onus to you, instead of
    Microsoft where it belongs, for any problems caused by using your computer.
    Turning off UAC does nothing with regard to actual computer security. UAC
    only slows down the use of Vista, which even with SP1 remains time by your
    wristwatch slower than XP for nearly all computer operations because UAC
    forces you to read and click through an absolutely useless warning screen.
    The problem you have is common in Vista installations because of the screwed
    up way Vista implements administrator versus other user rights.
    If you have not already done so try right clicking on the CS3 icon and
    choose "run as administrator."
    If that does not work then you will have to contact Microsoft. They actually
    respond to emails about this issue. Alas I have not found their suggestions
    helpful. Reinstalling Vista and paying careful attention to passwords and
    other issues (don't use any) may correct the problem. Then you will have to
    reactivate Vista, probably by begging someone in the Indian call center for
    a new code.

    installed Adobe Photoshop CS2 on my Windows Vista




    I thought Vista support was added with version CS3?

  10. Default Re: You are not allowed to continue becauseyour account does not have the proper privileges.

    You should be able to just right click on the CS2 icon and choose 'run as
    administrator' the first time to activate it and then run normally after that. I
    ran CS2 on Vista for a while and that's what I did, leaving UAC on IIRC.
