Windows 10: Program Files Permissions

    Program Files Permissions


    Hi there,

    I upgraded from 7 to 10 today on my PC, and all appears to have gone well...

    1 thing I noticed however was that I had a program that is portable (i.e. you run directly from it's own folder each time, rather than installing into Program Files), and because I never needed it to be portable, I copied the folder into my program files folder to keep things tidy. I then set it to run at startup.

    However on Windows 10, Permission is Denied when trying to run either at startup or manually. Running as admin works.

    I'm guessing there's a change of permission level from win 7 to win 10, but wondered whether there was a way to allow this sort of thing?

    Not a massive issue as for now I just copied the folder onto my desktop and it runs as normal.

    Just copy the .exe to your start menu , take ownership and run it. You can also give it admin privileges
