Note for Windows Vista and Windows 7 users:
Under Windows Vista (with User Account Control turned on) an application starts with only Standard permissions, regardless of what level of authority the current user has. As a result, an installer run normally with an Admin account under Vista only has Standard privileges and either is not able to write to certain critical areas of the registry/file system, or redirects the write requests to a per-user virtualized registry/file system.

Sparx Systems recommends that if you are installing on Windows Vista, always run the Enterprise Architect installer with Administrator privileges (recommended whether you have UAC turned on or not). To grant the application Administrator privileges, right-click on the downloaded installer icon and select the Run as administrator menu option.

* Enterprise Architect is a 32 bit application, however it can be run on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows Operating Systems.

** Wine is continually updated. For the best experience, we recommend maintaining an updated version of either the Stable or Development version from winehq.org. The development version is frequently updated with fixes that will directly improve Enterprise Architect compatibility, but may experience small problems on occasion. In general, we believe that this branch offers the best experience with Enterprise Architect.
