Hi All

A member of staff has downloaded a trial version of Freedom and I've installed it on his machine. The person doesn't have admin rights to this machine so I've followed the instructions (Option 5 - Run as administrator using compatibility mode). Logged in as the non admin account I've entered in the local administrator account details when clicking on "Change settings for all users" but each time he opens Freedom on the desktop it's always prompting for the admin password.

Is there anyway this program can run without admin rights? The machine is running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit version.

Hello Davey, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could use the method in the tutorial below to create an elevated shortcut that a standard user is able to run.
