I am trying to install a software for a particle measurement device I am using.
I inserted the CD into my ROM and when I attempt to auto-run, I get the following error message
"error executing file D:\Software\Setup.exe the requested operation requires elevation"
Now I looked around and found that, as the message indicates, this is related to administrative privileges on my Windows 8. So now I tried to run the setup.exe as an administrator but then I get the following error message:
There is insufficient memory on this machine. The application recommends 16 MB of memory."
This makes no sense since I've got Intel i7-3610QM 2.3 GHz and 6GB DDR3 memory.
Someone suggested to try to set up a virtual machine and setup winXP on the virtual machine and try to install it there. After all, the software is relatively old. But I figured to try and see if there are alternative and easier methods to fix this problem so I can install the software. Can Stackexchange help me with this?
