As you say, UAC is still in place and yes, I need to disable UAC in Registry in order to get things work that I need. Windows 10 is Blocking some Programs that are working OK in Windows 8.1. And that way of "Take Ownership" is too much confusion. How do I explain the users of my Programm what they have todo ? Would they be able to do it right? Will they destroy there system because of this? My Programm is a Multi-User Databse and also in W 8.1 it has to be installed in other Partition than C:\ otherwise it is not working savely, I mean, there will be Data corruption. Installing in other Partition is already a big problem for my users, they need to have very knowledge of PC. That ideia of Blocking and LOcking Drive C:\ is too Bad for me, thought it is a save , a complety harmless app.
I have now spent 3 weeks investigating what was going on with my App and I am tired of that.
Thank you, but I will install 8.1 today.
Sounds some re-coding will be beneficial, your customers will be on W10 sooner or later.
Don't know if you have read this tutorial about adding a Take Ownership command to your context menu or not. This would give you ownership of any file with just a click of your mouse.
Take Ownership - Add to Context Menu in Windows 10
I tried it, and it works thought it is not a nice (clean thing) and it take several time. It has to process 798 Files and 9 Subfolders and what the user is becoming to see is scaring, that schrolling of processing files, may be he will get an Heart-Attack.
Anyway I am not sure if I can use it on the distribution, because in Europe the are very strengh Laws about "invading" other peoples World including PCīs.
Well, I have the filling that the people at Microsoft are laugfing at me.
We are going to get a new update from MS today .....maybe that will have some bug fixes that might help you....
I did got the update but no changes. I believe it got worse, then I put a CD in drive and was poping up a windows wiht "you have no rights", I had to open explorer, open folder, and "Run as Administrator" . Well, for me than is no "Security" is just making things more dificult, it is taking longer to get things done. This is frustrating.
I will stop with Win 10 I can not lose more time with it, and at the there will be no change at all.
They are not doing what should be done, like ask for a Administrator Password for to Install a Programm and that should be enough. Also, instead of blocking the entire World just because they donīt like Programms in Windows Partition, then they should create a Partition solely for Windows and let user thing on their own. That would be the best security for Users, in case of a failure in OS partition it would not afect User Data.
I will go back to Win 8.1 that is the last nice Version
Again , thank you your help.
