Hello,

While installing Symantec Endpoint Protection client, on windows 7 64 bit machine, i received a warning message seeking for higher privileges for installing the SEP client and I cannot continue with the installation process.

This version of Symantec Antivirus Win64 requires elevated privileges in order to install. Please log in as an administrator, or contact your network administrator for help.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

It could be that there are multiple users on the computer you are using and you are not the administrator of it. if this is not the situation, do install it this way then

pop the disc in, I'm assuming you are using a disc to install SEP.

normally it will autorun. so, do not install it yet.

go to My Computer. Open the drive icon for your disc or simply goto the setup file for SEP.

right-click on it and then select "run as administrator".

This procedure should take care of that administrative privileges and get your SEP installed.

BUT, if you are not the administrator of the system and not the only user of it. It might require a password.
