Interesting. I just created a new standard user as a Local
account (not Microsoft cloud account).
I set up and started SW2, and it all worked correctly with no
error messages. It created the FDM-SW2 folder for that user in
the default location
So it looks like no admin privileges are necessary to *RUN* SW2
for local accounts on Windows 10 version 1903, so long as you
don't change the default location of the installation (C:\Program
Files (x86)\ELAD\ELAD FDM-SW2) and the data folder
(C:\Users\test\Documents\ELAD\FDM-SW2). I'm sure that installing
or updating the software would result in UAC prompting for admin
If the software is installed somewhere else other than the
default, or pointed at a different data folder (such as c:\ELAD),
then it certainly could need admin privileges to run it. It might
also be different in the Pro/Enterprise variants of Win10. This
is just a home user installation.

Hi Neil, in fact i never found any reference with the Elad documentation. Anyway the Elad SW? does not open without admin privileges. The Admin is you or else if included with the permission assignments. Useful for NetWork systems. A program that is requesting privileges would check the permission similar to this code: Try 'check if program opend with admin priv Dim identity = WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent() Dim principal = New WindowsPrincipal(identity) Dim isElevated As Boolean = principal.IsInRole(WindowsBuiltInRole.Administrator) If isElevated Then 'Msg Else FlexibleMessageBox.Show("Program must be opened with Admin privileges.", _ AppTitle, MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Hand) End End If Catch ex As Exception End Try Raimund .
