Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant

Hi, The Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant won't let me run it without actually logging into an actual Windows 7 admin profile. I've right-clicked the file to "run-as administrator" and entered the correct administrator password but it still says that I can't do that.

I don't really want to run the Upgrade Assistant and download the that actual setup file for the Windows 8 Pro upgrade under the Admin account.


Does anyone have any ideas on this?
