Administrator rights required on Windows


When I distribute my windows build as Zip file, users complain that they need administrator rights to run the software. Can I do something to avoid this ?

It is really easy, don’t perform actions that requiere administrator rights in your software. …

Or if you dont, check the build settings for windows, under Security, maybe the privileges option is set to administrator, just change it to user.

Check the advanced settings on the Windows build target. There’s an option in there that can require Admin rights.

Is your executable signed ?

Does your app try to write files at startup?
If so, exactly where are the files?

I set privileges to User, store my apps in C:Application Data, and preferences etc in user/AppData/Roaming. I don’t particularly like C:Application Data, but it works and I don’t have any permissions issues.
