Cannot download software

I cannot download the free 2D software. I get a message, "The requested operation requires elevation." The message also shows a 7ZIP indicator. I don't know anything about 7ZIP and am reluctant to install it on my computer.

Hi there @boris35,

 

The message is basically saying you need administrative privileges on your system to install......the easiest way to overcome this, usually, is just to right click on the *.EXE file, and select "Run as administrator"....

BTW: there are a few free file compression tools [WinZip, WinRAR, etc] out there, and 7Zip is a pretty good one.

Thank you very much!!! Now the question I wonder is, why didn't my computer just say that I needed administrative privileges and to right click, and select "Run as administrator"....etc., etc.? Again, "Thank You."
