Admin rights required?

If I try to open Mathcad14 from a user on my computer who does not have Admin rights, I get the following error message:

Description:
Stopped working
Problem signature:
Problem Event Name:APPCRASH
Application Name:mathcad.exe
Application Version:14.0.2.5
Application Timestamp:47a9b0aa
Fault Module Name:MFC80U.DLL
Fault Module Version:8.0.50727.4053
Fault Module Timestamp:4a595928
Exception Code:c0000005
Exception Offset:00030893
OS Version:6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3
Locale ID:1033

The only way I am able to bypass this (aside from signing out and logging on as an Admin) is to right-click and choose "run as admin" (I also know how to go into the properties of the exe file and choose to always run as an admin), but I would prefer to avoid this.

Any experiences with this?

Re: Admin rights required?

Mark,

I haven't got the answer to your problem, but have come across the "admin rights required" problem. When I run the spell checker I can't add words to the English dictionary because I need administrative rights.

There a few ways as you know to get around this problem.

If it’s a work computer get them to give you the required permissions.

If you can log in as an administrator – Just give yourself the permissions – Like I did. J

Not quite the answer you where looking for, but hey problem solved.

Mike
