    win7 to win10 weird issue


    hello, i upgraded to win10pro from win7ultimate. After completion, i noticed that office2013 and foxitpdf applications did not launch after clicking on their shortcut or their exe in the respective folders. Neither did associated files open, ie clicking on an excel workbook file, failed to launch the application. Other applications, like an image viewer for example kept working fine.

    i reinstalled office and foxitpdf, but same situation. i tried to run the applications as administrator and they launch fine. However, an excel workbook or a word document for example will not open directly, but i need to open them from within the application, which i have to run as admin.

    my local account is member of the administrators group, with full rights.

    any help/advise appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
    You might ask here seeing you're using it

    It's not uncommon after a upgrade to have to now clean install win-10
