    How can I change the admin settings?


    There's a software that for some reason won't install if I install it with admin rights. I need to know how to make it so that my computer doesn't ask for the password when I install something. How can I do that? Thanks.

    I hesitate to offer any guidance because I believe that there is a hidden problem with that software that you ought to be investigating instead of bypassing.

    However, you've asked so ...
    1 Disconnect from the internet & any other networks.
    2 {Start, Windows system} Control panel, User accounts, User accounts again if necessary [needed if your view is set up a certain way].
    3 Change User account control settings, give admin permission to proceed, drag the slider down to the bottom - Never notify, OK, give admin permission to proceed.
    4 Install your software.
    5 Repeat steps 2,3 but drag the slider up to the top or second-to-top level {which is its default].
    6 It is now safe to reconnect to the internet & other networks.

    Please investigate the cause of your software problem.

    It does that to elevate user permissions, so that malware cannot just install. You can use the built in Administrator account as Root. If you want the risk and use Root permissions, here you go. See for UAC. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...-control-works

    Thanks but the actual creator of the software stated himself it won't work with admin rights when installed.

    The admin challenge you saw before was generated by the application's attempt to change system items - e.g. Program files folder contents, Registry, ...

    Windows protects you against applications that change such things without your permission.

    It follows that the unidentified software you are attempting to install has not been written in accordance with the design guidelines issued by MS. If the creator cannot be bothered to adhere to these guidelines then what reason is there to believe that he has adhered to any design discipline at all. This software might wreck your computer and all your personal files for all you know.

    Ditch this software and get some properly-written software instead.

    What is the name of the software?
    Something is just not right, IMHO.

    This request may have catastrophic results. I would make a full restorable image of your system, first, should you decide to proceed.

    FWIW.

    It's called ABPL bass lite P lite II. All i want to do is make it so that when I install a software it doesn't ask for my admin info. This never happened with my old computer, when I installed something, it didn't ask for admin. But I have a new computer now, not because there was any trouble with the old one, I spilt water on it. I know it sounds shady, but I don't want to disable admin or anything like that, all I want is so it doesn't ask for my password when I install something.

    Actually, never mind I just read what try 3 said, he's right. all though the software worked perfectly fine when I used it, when I ran scans on my computer it always made broken shortcuts and registry items that wouldn't go away, and slowed my computer down. I'll just find some new software, that's better. Thanks.
