Been using this for some time now. It's very practical. Just remember to run it as administrator, otherwise it can not write in the .ini file and you can exit only by ending the process from Task Manager:

The simple fix is to install as Administrator then go to the Software installed folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\SoftwareName) and change the permissions for the USERS group to Modify. Then the standard users can run the software all the time. If you are super concerned about security you could modify only the .INI file.
