Default CMD prompt issues

When i try to enter some commands in the command line window, it tells me that the requested operation requires elevation. What does this mean and how to I fix it? I am running windows vista.

Default Re: CMD prompt issues

It means that the command prompt is not running with Admin Rights. Right click the Cmd shortcut and use the Run as Administrator to fix this issue.
