You receive the "You need to be an administrator or a user with administrative rights to install ACU. Please log on as a different user and try again" message when attempting to install the ACU


This message means a non-administrative user attempted to install the Aironet Client Utility (ACU), and the installation process terminated. The recommended action is to logon as an Administrator or account with Admin rights to install the utility.

Note: InstallShield 7.x also fixes this issue.
