In this tutorial, we learn how to run a command prompt as administrator (Vista or 7). First, you will click on the start menu, then search for the term "prompt". Launch the command prompt, then a window will pop up with a black window. Type something in to see if it tells you the operation needs elevation. Now, click the start menu and type in "prompt" again. Then, click on the command link, right click, then click "run as administrator". Now, the new window will pop up that says "administrator" at the top of it. From here you can type in commands without it failing.
