Please read the following items prior to beginning installation to ensure the process performs as expected.

Internet Connection

The Installer package attempts to install any missing prerequisites prior to installing STAAD.Pro. Some third party prerequisites are not included in the package installer so the Installer package attempts to download them from the Internet and initiate their installation for you (a bootstrap installer as described in To Install STAAD.Pro ).

Windows Administration Privileges

Even if you are logged in as a user with administrative privileges, certain programs may require confirmation to be run with administrative privileges. By default, a Windows Explorer process runs with standard user privileges, even if the login ID has full administrative privileges. To overcome this, the installer may request to run with administer privileges when launched. Please provide administrator credentials (if requested) and accept this dialog before proceeding.
