I downloaded Rapid Miner version 5.0. Now, I'm unable to update any of the features like Weka Extension, Text Processing and Web Mining etc.

I'm getting this error:
Cannot create update directory. I'm actually logged in as administrator. Please let me know how I can overcome this issue. I use a Windows 7 32 bit system. Is there any special permission I need to give in any of the sytem settings?

    in order to update RapidMiner, you will have to start RapidMiner with administrator privileges. Even if you work as administrator under Windows 7, you won't have the rights to write into the program directory unless you choose "Run as Administrator" in the context menu of the RapidMiner icon.
