Right, so i've installed Sibelius 5 and everything seemed to go according to plan, however, when i try to open it, i get this 'error' message.

'You cannot run for the first time, register or unregister Sibelius unless you are the computer administrator. Please log in as the computer administrator and try again. (After Sibelius is registered, any user account can use Sibelius).

However, i've only got the one user on this laptop, any help as to what i can do?

Right click the icon and select "Run as Administrator"? That's how it goes on Vista at least.

Back in the 70's I decided to take all the frets off Jaco's Bass thinking he would play worse. Man did that backfire.

I fixed that by going on playback devices, audio engine options, interface dropdown box and selected my sound device and haven't had that error since.
I will shred in the end!!

How did you fix this?
I've encountered the exact same problem and I need Sibelius for my GCSE music coursework.
I am running Vista home premium.
I have tried right clicking but "run as administrator" does not appear.
Thanks;

You're not giving enough information.

Which OS are you using?
Did you illegally download or legally purchase Sibelius 5?
What were the steps you used to install and activate?

...modes and scales are still useless.

Well, I was directing those questions at the TS, but okay.

Is this a pirated version or a purchased version?

I am on OSX right now, so I can't tell you exactly what to do. But most likely, you have an older copy or the pirated copy itself has a registered line already. If right-clicking and "run as administrator" doesn't work, you'll have to delete the registration information manually.

To do this, go into the Registry Editor (start -> search -> regedit), and find Sibelius's registry information. Follow the instructions here:
