    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?
