I need soe help with OpenIV! Please help me!

I was trying to install OpenIV in german and then it told me to select the path to GTA EFLC and then when I tried to go forward the Computer said Error: OpenIV does not allow you to do work in this Folder. Start OpenIV as Administrator.

The problem is that I am the Administrator and I don't know what the Problem is!
I am a Windows 7 User and I even checked that I am Administrator and according to User Settings I am Administrator!

But still the PC gives me Errors! Can somebody help me, please?

My is solved! A good Friend of mine figured out what the Problem was!

Im facing the same problem when i try to open the GTA IV.exe file after browsing it .I think its a Windows 7 thing that is not allowing access to files through this OPEN IV program .Not sure though but i think some one might be able to figure out why this happens .Let me know too what your friend figured out .Please

To start OpenIV as administrator, right-click on OpenIV.exe and select "Run as administrator".

If it still doesn't work, maybe the files are read-only. Right-click the folder(s) containing the files you want to edit, and select "Properties". Then uncheck the "Read-only" checkbox.
