I have 2 desktops with 64-bit Windows 10 Home installed. On both computers, the UAC settings are the same -- the highest setting (always notify when apps try to install stuff or when I make changes). On both computers, I install the same program (FujiXerox Docuworks 8.05) from the same CD with the same licence number (because that licence works for 5 computers).

On one computer (let's call it CompA), the Docuworks Viewer (dwviewer.exe) runs without needing admin rights, while on the other computer (let's call it CompB), that same program (dwviewer.exe) requires admin rights.

Strangely, when I copy that program (dwviewer.exe !) to another folder on CompB, the UAC requirement to run the program is dropped. In another folder, there is no UAC popup when I run that program -- it opens directly without asking for the admin password.

on CompA, the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Fuji Xerox\DocuWorks\bin\dwviewer.exe" does not require an admin password to run.
on CompB, the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Fuji Xerox\DocuWorks\bin\dwviewer.exe" requires an admin password to run.
on CompB, the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Fuji Xerox\DocuWorks\dwviewer.exe" does not require an admin password to run.

I do not understand why this is so or how to troubleshoot this at this moment.

What I know is that when I open a file from within Docuworks Desk (dwdesk.exe), it will require "C:\Program Files (x86)\Fuji Xerox\DocuWorks\bin\dwviewer.exe" to run, and on CompB, that means I get a UAC popup.

I want to fix the current situation so that I do not need CompB users to key in the admin password each time they want to run "dwviewer.exe" from clicking files within "dwdesk.exe".

Please help. I would appreciate it very much.
