    Elevated Programs

    Hey. I have downloaded a game on steam called "Dragon Nest". When I start the game up, a UAC window pops up and tells me that I need administrator privileges. No problem. This is my laptop so I am the admin. The problem is that I don't want this program to require elevated privileges and I am looking for a way to change that. Thanks.

    If it wasn't a Steam game, I'd say try to just set the shortcut to run as admin, which might work anyway.

    But since it is Steam, probably best to leave it alone and be glad it's all working for ya as is. One minor thing can break stuff with Steam.

    This was the decision of the developer. Unless you change his code, you'll have to live with it.

    Look at this trick. Maybe it helps - not sure for Steam though.
