I do not have administrator rights to install ASAP Utilities. What do I do?

Published: September 22, 2006 (latest revision May 15, 2017)
reference id: QA0109

Update: April 2017 - Version 7.3+

For users with either Excel 2010, Excel 2013 or Excel 2016/365 we have created a special version of the Business edition that standard/limited users can install.

This single-user setup does not require administrator rights during the installation.

Older versions, 7.2 and earlier:


To install or update ASAP Utilities you need to be able to install software on your computer.
This usually means that you must have administrator privileges or be a member of the Power Users group to install ASAP Utilities, or you can choose to run the setup as administrator if you have a limited user account.

If you don't have the rights on your computer to install ASAP Utilities, you can perhaps ask a colleague with administrator or power user rights, or your IT department to install it for you. Detailed information about the installation is available on this website and even more thorough described in the User Guide.

Only needed during the installation

When the installation is finished every user on the computer is able to use ASAP Utilities.

Run the setup as administrator

To run the setup you can either log in as administrator on your computer, but it is perhaps easier to right-click on the setup file and choose "Run as...".
After the installation is finished every user on the computer (including the ones with limited rights) is able to use ASAP Utilities.

Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista

Right click on the setup and choose "Run as administrator..."
Then enter the information for an account with administrator rights and the setup will start:

Windows XP

Right click on the setup and choose "Run as..."
Then enter the information for an account with administrator rights and the setup will start:

Windows 2000

In Windows 2000 there is no option in the rigth-click menu to run the setup as administrator. If you want to do this without logging in to Windows as administror, you need to create a shortcut to the setup file, then in the shortcut properties you can choose to have the file run as another user.
