WIN7: Can't Update DirectX

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
When I try running dxwebsetup.exe I get an error saying:

"Current logon user doesn't have the administrator privilege. Please logon again as an Administrator or contact your PC Administrator."

I'm the only user on my computer and it is set at Admin. And "Run As Admin" doesn't work either.

I'm using Windows 7 64bit.
Need extra information? Ask.

Could be an open program is conflicting with the install. You could try doing it in safe mode.

EDIT: You could also try the SFC /SCANNOW command in the run screen, this can have an impact on some windows files so if your going to run it you may want to consider backing up your system.

Try:
Open command prompt as an administrator (right click, run as)
Use the Change directory command to browse to the file folder, e.g.
CD "C:\\users\\username\\desktop" (if unsure of the folder path, browse to it using windows explorer (Win+E) and copy the path from the address bar.
Now type the name of the file including the file extension - dxwebsetup.exe

See if that works, if not I may have another idea but try this first.

EIDT: If your are unable to run cmd prompt as an admin then there is almost certainately an account issue, if so let me know!
