try to RIGHT CLICK the program or shortcut and "run as administrator"

Also look at https://www.itechtics.com/enable-administrator-account-windows-10/ for how to log on as adminstrator.

Thank you for the help. After I posted the message, I tried it again, got the error again, but I clicked ok, and it opened without any problems.
