Run as Admin - what problems does it cause?


Recommended Posts

I was wondering  exactly what issues are caused by running LB/BB as admin. Which emulators have issues, what are the issues. Which utilities and what's their behavior. Any other weird behavior.

The reason I run as admin is to stop those UAC prompts when launching pc games (especially the old ones).

Could Jason make a startup utility / service that could launch just the games and emulators we wanted with admin rights so we don't get uac prompts and LB/BB won't have to run with admin rights? Like a check box somewhere "Launch this with Admin Rights"
