Solid Edge versus Windows 8.1

Hi.

I'm trying to install Solid Edge ST7 in Windows 8.1, but I'm receiving the warning: " Could not open key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE32\Software\Classes\Interface\{... "

I'm using the Windows 8.1 Pro licensed and I'm system administrator.

Some ideia?

Being an administrator is not the same as using "Run As Administrator".  Even with administrator rights, you still do not run anything elevated and still get prompted by UAC.  You have to use "Run As Administrator" to do that or turn off the UAC, restart Windows, run the install, turn on UAC, restart Windows.


Thanks,
