    I verify that there is something wrong with the take ownership with exe.

    because some installers wont run. a dosbox flashes and thats it. they would only run if went to compatibly and mark run as administrator.

    removed the reg keys and programs run.

    also caused the game for windows live installer to error during install.

    the regular takeownship works fine

    Hello dskiller,

    Are you using "Take Ownership" to run the programs, or is this happen while just double clicking on the program?

    Using "Take Ownership" on an .exe file will not run it or have it "Run as administrator".

    The "Take Ownership" context menu itself wouldn't cause that. It sounds like the problem is that the program needed "Run as administrator" used, but wasn't since it was replaced by "Take Ownership".

    That's the main reason why I prefer to have "Run as administrator" instead of "Take Ownership" for .exe files. If the .exe needs to run elevated to run properly, "Run as administrator" would make is easier versus having to use another option (ex: CTRL+SHIFT and click) below if you had "Take Ownership" instead.

    Hello Icha,

    I don't see a problem in your screenshot.

    If you used step 5, then it will show the command prompt pause like that.

    If you don't want the command prompt, then step 3 would be better.

    The Problem, Only if Opened "Command prompt With Administrator Privilege" But If I Only Opened Command Prompt Without Administrator Privilege that message not Appear, I just assumed that because that command part will RunAs all .exe file
    Less is More Like it

    Icha,

    Sorry, but I'm not sure what you mean since you would be using the context menu and not manually opening a command prompt. Could you please explain what you mean?

    No worries.

    My confusion is that you say you are using the "Take Ownership" context menu when opening an elevated command prompt.

    This is not possible since you can only use "Take Ownership" if you right click on a file, and click on it.

    Could you please clarify that?
