Notes for Installing and Running the Model Newer operating systems have new levels of security which cause programs to require an administrator level to install and run. Because of this, E-FAST2014 may not run if a user simply double-clicks the icon. However, if the user right-clicks on the program icon, and selects "run as administrator," the program runs normally. This is a simple work-around that can be done when using the model on an independent computer. The user also has the option of setting up the program during installation to always run as an administrator. If the user is working on a PC that is part of a network or has restricted access, the network administrator would need to have the individual PCs set up so that the program folder has administrator rights.
