    [Solved] [Bug report] Can't install Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST)

    itstudent

      Hi I'm having a problem with the installation of the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver (version 11.6.0.1030). When I run the installation I get this error:

       

      The error comes althought I'm on the Administrator-Account and run the setup as administrator.

       

      ---------------------------

      Intel(R) Installation Framework

      ---------------------------

      The login account does not have the required administrator privileges.  Please use an administrator account.

      Installer will now exit.

      ---------------------------

      OK  

      ---------------------------

       

      My System:

       

      Windows 8 Enterprise 64bit

      Intel i5-650

      Intel Ibex Peak H57 chipset

      2 HDDs RAID 0

       

      Thank you for your replies.

          I solved the problem. I had changed the standard install path in Windows to my seconds partition and then I made a junction from C:\Program Files (x86)\ to P:\Program Files (x86)\. So the installer tried to access C:\Program Files (x86) and couldn't because of the junction and replied with an error that says that I don't have administrator priviliges.

           

          It would be better if the installer say "I can't access C:\Program Files (x86). Please check if you have administrator priviliges.

           

          So  I think this is a bug because the error is not true and the program doesn't have to check if it has access to C:\Program Files (x86) but rather it should check if it has access to the standard Windows install path wich is for me P:\Program Files (x86)

           

          Can someone of the Intel employee check that?
