    Requested Operation Requires Elevation - ExamGuard


    Just got a home PC with Windows 8 last week. We were running a program called ExamGuard for the past week. This program basically locks your browser so you can't copy/paste or navigate away from the exam until it's completed.

    Suddenly today it stopped working. When running a diagnostic, it states Requested Operation Requires Elevation.

    Help! This user is the administrator. Can't figure it out and we have a test to take!

    Hello Celial, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    That usually means that you will need to right click on the program's shortcut and click on Run as administrator for the program to run elevated.

    Run as Administrator - in Windows 8

    If you like, you could probably use OPTION FIVE or OPTION SIX in the same tutorial above to always have that progam "Run as administrator" when you run it.

    Hope this helps,
