Trouble installing Nessus plugins on Windows 7


Hi all,



I am trying to install Nessus plugins on my Windows 7 Professional 64-bit box.


I donwnloaded the plugins (all-2.0.tar.gz). I always get the error message when I try to install the plugins using the following command:


C:\Program Files (x86)\Tenable\Nessus>nessus-update-plugins.exe all-2.0.tar.gz


Only Administrator can use nessus-update-plugins.exe



Now I am logged in as Administrator only and I followed the Nessus 4.4 Installation guide. Nessus 4.4 Home Feed installation on my Windows 7.0 64-bit box worked perfectly fine.


I have hit this road block in the installation of plugins.


Any help would be highly appreciated?
