User is prompted for an Admin username and password when downloading QuickBooks Desktop

When trying to download QuickBooks Desktop from a link sent in an email or from the Intuit website, a User Account Control dialog box appears prompting for the Windows Administrator user name and password.

How to fix it

You are not logged in to Microsoft Windows as an Administrator. Log in to Windows using an Administrator level account, and try the download again.
