    The Sun one. I am running Vista x64 SP2. I got the admin rights to install it, but when I try to launch a VB as a standard user (security) it just spawns a clone window. If I close that, it pops up with something that it failed to launch. Help?

    Have you tried right click > run as admin?

    Please post in ask.gbatemp.net next time.

    The thing is, I can't do that.

    And yeah, I kinda forgot about Ask.

    I know VMWare (which has a fully-free version now, the player can also make virtual drives) keeps it's stuff in the user folder, so it doesn't need admin access to run (but of course it needs it to install).
