WindowsError: The requested operation requires elevation
I got this error while installing Pylons for the first time. Pylons a web framework for Python - and from what I've read, the best solution for what we need. Of course, there's Django, which Google AppEngine uses.
Anyway, the error is due to user rights on your machine. I'm sick of Vista requiring me to run things as an administrator or preventing me from running things. I am the administrator. And I'm always logged in, so why does it keep asking me this.
I finally disabled User Account Control. Just go to Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Turn User Account Control off.
