    I am not sure if this is an IE7 issue or a Vista issue. I am using Vista Beta
    2. I am trying to use a corporate VPN site which installs and runs a Juniper
    ActiveX control to connect via VPN. I get prompted and tell IE to go ahead
    and install the ActiveX control. I also turned off Protected Mode in IE and
    got the same result.

    It starts the installation process, and then comes back with the following
    You do not have the proper privileges to install the application

    Works fine in Win XP Pro SP3 and IE6.
    Any ideas on whether or not I can fix this?

    I did not read the original post, but it seems to me like you should save
    the install file to a disk (if it's not on one already), right-click the
    file and choose "Run as Administrator" and provide administrative

    Right click on the installation .exe and select Run as Administrator?

  6. You will need to run as administrator so locate the .exe file which relates
    to the application you are trying to install (usually setup.exe) Right click
    on the setup file and, from the drop down menu, select the 'run as
    administrator' option.
