Hi y'all,

I'm very much new to Bitcoin, and while I am familiar with computers I'm definitely not as tech savvy as some.

I have downloaded what I think is the latest version of Bitcoin, bitcoin-0.3.20.2-win32-setup, but every time I try and install it on my PC, I encounter this following message:


Bitcoin Setup

Error opening file for writing:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Bitcoin\bitcoin.exe

Click Abort to stop the installation,
Retry to try again, or
Ignore to skip this file.


Wondering if any of you ever encountered this, and if so what can be done about it? Any advice would be much appreciated, would really like to crack this. Thanks!

You need to install it as an administrator.
