Bug report #1766
Installer skips all files and completes without installing anything

I have tried several times to install the Windows version of QGIS on a Windows Vista partition of a Macbook running bootcamp that already has QGIS Mac version installed on the mac partition. Windows sees the Windows partition as the "C:" drive and selects "Program Files" as the install directory. The installation appears to go normally untill it shows "Skipped: " and scrolls past all the files before saying "Quantum GIS 1.0.2 has been installed on your computer"

I already seen this behaviour when trying to install on Vista on colleagues pc. If I'm not wrong you have to execute the installer as admin/with admin authorization (or something like that, I don't use nor own Vista).
Please give it a try and report back.

Replying to [comment:3 arvydar]:
I only have one account on my Vista partition and it is an administrator account.
I guess that this doesn't count much: there are still a bunch of applications you need to do the
right click on the file -> properties -> compatibility -> run this program as administrator
in order to be able to install them on Vista.
