    Install Perl on Win7 with user account


    I only have a user account of a Win7 laptop.
    When I install ActivePerl-5.8.8.824-MSWin32-x86-287188.msi, it appears that I have no right to install it.
    I have disabled UAC, however, it still fails.

    Does anybody know how to install it on win7 with a user account?

    Right click on the msi file and from the options, click on "Run as Administrator".

    Unfortunately, I can't find "Run as Administrator" in the options.

    I think in win 7, you have to press shift and then right click to see the "Run as Administrator" option.

    I have this same situation on my company laptop where I'm not in the local administrators group ....
    I successfully installed/use strawberry_perl, by downloading/installing from a 'zip' file into one of my personal utility directories.

    p.s. The same goes for cygwin.
