  1. How to make the game I downloaded accessible to non-admin user as well?


    I have downloaded a game while logged into the account in question, but every time the game is opened, it asks for admin approval before running.

    I've looked around and I'm aware that this is UAC. I've tried changing the owner of the game as well as all of the game files, but that doesn't remove the prompt. I've tried running the game through an elevated task in the task scheduler, but that didn't work either. I've tried giving full control of all the relevant files to the user as well, that didn't work either. I've tried removing UAC altogether, but that didn't work either.

    After all that, it still always wants a password before letting the user in.

    The only reason that would sort of make sense to me is if the game has dependencies somewhere that it can't access without admin permissions, but I made the whole game folder accessible to the user, so I don't think it's that. If the game has dependencies outside of this folder in some other location, then it sort of makes sense I guess, but it's going to be a pain in the ass to find those.

    Is there anything I'm missing?

    ATITool 0.24 in non-admin user

    Hmm, strange thing. I uninstalled v0.24 and installed v0.23, which works fine. After I read your advices, I installed v0.24 again and "Voila!", it starts in PowerUsers (non-admin) without errors/complains.
    Thank you for your suggestions and sorry for the post.
     
  3. Access to games

    I downloaded a game on the admin account. Other users, one non admin and one admin account, can not access the game. How do I allow them access to the game.

    Cannot access shared network drive


    Personally, I wouldnt use Everyone. If anyone hacks into you, they have full access to everything and can demolish everything on your raid. I would rather set up accounts and access separately for each person. That way, I know who did all that damage. In the end with a little extra work, I feel more secure by using Authenticated Users.


    If this helps.
    step 1 create non-microsoft account and without email and address without admin rights
    step 2 share a drive or folder to specific user account (if Everyone is listed, remove it)
    step 3 set security > add Authenticated Users (if more than 1 account) or add specific users
    step 3a remove Everyone from list
    step 3b uncheck full control and write for all items listed except SYSTEM and Admin account.
    step 4 right click Start > Computer Management > System Tools > Shared Folders > Shares ... to verify settings and change anything else. You can also see the number of connections to each share here.
