I have the UAC down to zero, yet it's still bugging me about how I need to run it as Administrator.

Degge,

Unfortunately, the only way to stop that is to manually use OPTION THREE in the tutorial for any program exe that requires it. Afterwards, it will remain set to always RAA.

Hello Lavecoi, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can only right click on that one to temporarily "Run as adminsitrator" it. However, you should not need to with Windows Media Player. What issue are you having with it??

I right click on wmplayer.exe and choose "properties" , in compatibility tab, i see " Compatibility mode can not be set on this program because it is part of this version of window " . How do I? because I only create "playlist" when i run it as administrator .

My English is not good, can you understand me?

Lavecoi,

I'm not sure if you will be able to, but you can give this tutorial a try to manually set the Windows Media Player exe file as RUNASADMIN in it.

I set wmplayer.exe RUNASADMIN, and it run as administrator right now.
But when I right click on music folder and choose " Play with Window Media Player" and the message box display " This requested operation requires elevation" . How can I avoid it without turn off UAC ?

With it set to always "Run as administrator", you will not be able to without doing so.
