  4. Right-click the downloaded file and select Show in Folder.
  5. Within the folder, right-click the same file and select Run as administrator.
  6. Enter your admin username and password. Click Yes.

Revu should now be correctly installed and you should no longer encounter this error when registering.

Run with an elevated command line

  1. Uninstall Revu 
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. Open an elevated command line. 
  4. Deploy Revu with the appropriate deployment script
