During the installation of either the Sophos Control Center or Enterprise Console the installation fails with the error:
This setup requires Administrator privileges.
First seen in Enterprise ConsoleSophos Control Center
This issue is usually caused by inadequate privileges when running the installer or User Account Control (UAC) blocking the install process.
If this still fails, you will need to disable UAC and reboot the system. To do this see article 44084.
