Addsolution fails to add webpart


I am on the sharepoint server. When I try step 4 I get the following error:
Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
c:\googlemaps\MJB.wss.GoogleMaps.wsp: The Solution installation failed.

Fixed this problem myself.

The issue is that you should be logged onto the Sharepoint Server as the administrator of the Sharepoint Site. I forgot that on my Intranet the local server administrator doesn't have the same permissions as the Sharepoint Site Administrator.
