Question is not writable / "must be restarted" infinitely

My last laptop got ganked by a bad repair shop so I've just bought a new one, Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. I downloaded the last version of BS Player Pro that my license covers and installed it. When I try to play a video, it brings up the license-key screen. I type in my name as it is on the license and paste in my code. Then problems occur depending on my installation settings:

1. If I installed BSPP using global "all users" settings, then when I enter the key, it says the file/directory is not writable. So I can't play videos.

2. If I installed BSPP using the "just me" user settings, then after I enter the key, it says BSPP must be restarted before changes will take effect. So I restart. Then when I try loading a video, or opening a video in Windows, it brings up the license key screen again. This occurs infinitely.

Help?!

Disable UAC. Unset "read only" property for program files folder.
BSPlayer can't save it's configuration file because User Account Control and "read only" property for program files are activated.

User Account Control is a new concept to me, so if that works, then I thank you very much. I'll give it a try tomorrow.

Well, that didn't work. I did this, and then turned off write-protection, and it still does the exacty same thing. I installed twice, once with default folders, and another time with global folders. THIS PROGRAM DOESN'T LIKE ME ANYMORE.

Now what, anyone?
