Hello Patrick, I haven't experienced that error message, but doing a general web search the OS "UAC" is blocking this. As long as you are not on a corporate IT controlled PC, then the Microsoft Developers Network says:
"A user can launch the installer or updater by right-clicking and selecting Run this program as administrator."
I find I have to launch nearly every program I install using the right mouse click run as admin option these days.
I use DSPCB and always launch that this way on the first install.
So give that a try if you have not already done so.
