Hello chrysalis, :)

For that, the method in the tutorial below should work in a standard account.

this did not work for me, i was trying to execute zotac firestorm app without uac prompt on startup , but microsoft application compatibility toolkit worked for me, much simpler than this method (windows 7 )

Windows 10 64 bit.

So I've tried this method about ten times now, and for the path (in the argument box) I first copy and pasted the path from my .exe's properties (all that did was open the file folder ), then I typed in nvidiaInspector.exe for the end of the path and it does absolutely nothing. A flash of a box will sometimes appear but nothing else. All I want to do is open nvidiaInpector without having to type in a password. Any help?

Please go ahead and post screenshots showing all your settings for this, and I'll be happy to take a look to see if anything may stand out.

For those who want to run a task like Process Explorer and have it sitting in the system tray and minimised, all you have to do is, in section 8 on page 1, just add the optional argument "/min"


/c start /min "ProcExp64" "C:\Program Files\SysInternals\ProcExp64.exe"

(Sorry if I'm teaching granny to suck eggs, but it took me a while to realise this! )

(And this is for Windows 10)
