I am having a strange problem with windows 8. I am not able to install a lot of softwares like VmWare itunes etc on it. After I click on the installer, the UAC pops up. When I click run, nothing happens! Help me please.
Its because of the feature called .net framework 3.5 is not activated in your system try to insert windows installation media and enter the following as administrator in the command prompt
dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /SourceC:\sxs /LimitAccess
Note you have to change the path "C:" to your inserted media's drive path
