Installing Shure Wireless Workbench v5.0.4 on a Macintosh running Snow Leopard in 64-bit mode produces an error message that says “Error: Couldn’t raise admin privileges”

When I try to install Wireless Workbench v5.0.4 on a Macintosh running Snow Leopard in 64-bit mode, I get an error message that says “Error: Couldn’t raise admin privileges”. Is there a solution for this?

Wireless Workbench software can run on a Macintosh running the Snow Leopard 64-bit kernal, but the installation program must run while the OS is in 32-bit mode.

Restart while holding the 3 and 2 keys simultaneously to boot into the 32-bit kernal.

Run the Wireless Workbench installer.

Restart the computer.

Run the Wireless Workbench application (Workbench.app located in Applications->Shure->Shure Wireless Workbench Software-5.0)

Note: you can verify the mode in which your system is running at any time by:

Choosing “About This Mac” from the Apple menu.
Click the “More Info” button.
In the “Contents” section, select “Software.”
If the entry “64-bit Kernal and Extensions” says “Yes,” the computer is running the 64-bit kernal. If it says “No,” it is running the 32-bit kernal.
