My account has administrator rights yet I don't have access to the
Application Data folder. I installed autodesk revit. I downloaded revit
content and when i try to install it it wants to go in the folder all
users\application data, but that fails since it is inaccessible. I am using
Vista Home Premium. Any suggestions?

Right click on the install/setup program and "run as administrator"...

that should do the trick
