Peter,

Am i reading this wrong?

- Cause the UAC (User Account Control) to be at normal levels.
This means that if you have been running XXHighEnd before under W10, you must set the slider to one of the higher levels and reboot.
UAC can be located by means of Control Panel - User Accounts - Change User Account Control Settings.


Here you write to put the UAC as high as possible. Before W10 it was as low as possible?? Right??  Happy Happy

Hi Gerard,

No, your reading is quite OK. Quite, because I didn't say to put it at the highest setting - just higher (meaning : don't leave it at the lowest as you will find it after having used XXHighEnd for the first time).

The question is not bad at all and it can be confusing especially for the elderly amongst us ( Smack ! )
However, what I am trying to say in there - or direct you to - is that you might find it useful at some stage to be as fresh as possible without really re-installing the (Windows 10) OS. This is all about what I ran into myself and how an errorneous situation becomes un-understandable when the base of the previous attempt is not the same any more.
Still there ? swoon

The UAC stuff (User Account Control) has been a pain for everybody since it was introduced in Vista. Even more pain is that it is changed in each Windows version. Personally I think it now is THE main culprit for Microsoft when they try to integrate the two Desktops (normal Windows and Metro). So, this is all UAC related. And, as we may recall, since Windows 8 and using XXHighEnd, no Metro Apps could run. Why ? the UAC level was too LOW LEVEL (meaning : too much towards Admins to be able to do all and which is what we need).
So give more rights and exclude functionality from the normal user. How mad can one be ...

It was only yesterday that I found out something which I did not even see before. This is about the UAC level being available *under* the lowest level we as a user get to see and which is there (indeed) since Windows 8. There is a second one somewhere (I don't even know where it is). I can't tell whether this is since Windows 10 but it can very well be because the program doesn't trigger on to what it did before. So ... it now looks like the UAC normal internal setting is back to what it was previously (Windows 7) and where the lowest level we see internally is the lowest level as well, BUT with not as much/many rights as we need. So what happens now is that the program detects a "lowest is fine !" while it isn't at all and things don't install. If you set the slider higher than lowest is detected again to be not-OK and the program makes it OK. And then things work.

wacko
Yes, sorry about that.
The point is that currently I don't know where to be to apply the proper check.

Something else and merely for fun :
If people want to enjoy the new start menu of Windows 10 be sure to look at it before you fire up XXHighEnd because after that you won't ever see it again. So here too, we can see that MS bonded all to the UAC level somehow and that the Metro Desktop has turned into a Metro Start Menu, which all does not work with the highest rights (lowest level access).
But no need to care about this because there's nothing in there that you will need (that I can see) and we are creating a "PC for Audio", right ?
