Windows 7: Internet Download Manager Admin Privilege

Internet Download Manager Admin Privilege

Just now i installed IDM, on my dedicated server.
Now when i am opening IDM, I am getting the message that "you are running IDM with admin privileges. IDM wont be able to take over downloads from browser in this mode.

So i went to the installation folder, there i checked properties of IDMAN and found that "Run this Program as an administrator" is not selected.

Previously it was working flawlessly and when i made this installation. everything went well though.

Welcome to the Forums.

There's a check box in Compatibility Tab as well as the Advanced Button in the Shortcut Tab. Make sure that is unchecked. Also check any shortcuts for the setting.
