First time here.
I am trying to load sp flash tool to up date my phone.
Downloaded sp_flash_tool_v5. 1512 win zip.
Unpack zip file, open folder, files appear, when I double click file sp flash tool.exe it opened correct. I then had to switch to Administrator, going back to normal screen, double clicking sp_flash_tools_ v5. 1512, the file icon has changed. Instead of a green android, it shows a page like a word doc. and does not load. I have change to multiple v, numbers, always the same outcome, it shows a page like a word doc. After trying my small laptop (which does the same) went back to my laptop. With file sp_flash_tool_v5. 1512, it loads for about 2 sec's then shuts down. any ideas?

Huh? You right-click the program in the start menu and 'Run as administrator'. You don't switch you to administrator. (If you installed the program in a non-administrative account, for use by the user only, it won't even be installed in another account.)
