I am having issues with running certain apps with admin privilege.
I have installed Notepad++ which i use for my .js files.
Now here's what's happening:
When im editing a file which is located in the programfiles folder, it wouldn't allow me to save it. I can only save it if i close the app, give it admin privilege(right click->compatibility->check run as admin).
This is fine with me. But if i do that, another issue pops up. I am then not able to open files in notepad++ via the context menu. neither can i drag drop the file onto notepad++. ( i get an error: Error in CreateProcess (740) )
I also have a similar issue with chrome(7.0.517.24).
If i set it to run as admin, i can't drag and drop files onto chrome!
If i uncheck the 'run as admin' option, it works. I am able to drop files onto chrome as usual.
I dont' know what could be causing this. I know it's UAC related, but i can't understand why would apps have problem opening files when they are running in 'admin mode'!
