Open Pandora, get a Windows error box

Post by Jack Yan on Thu Feb 08, 2018 11:15 am

When I open Pandora, I get a warning window asking me if I want to let Pandora make changes to my device. I get that this is part of User Account Control and I can switch it off, but it seems a bit silly to do that if it helps in other situations. Is there a way to prevent the dialogue box from coming up?

Is this a permanent solution to run Pandora in Administrator mode? Or just a temporary fix until the next update is released?

Pandora 1.67 includes the manifest with UAC Execution Level set to "highest possible" (so user does not have to run as Administrator for every little change in Windows). It was originally meant to be permanent. However as Windows is overwriting it's rules about rules-overwriting it's scraped - we are back to "as invoker".

[In effect ~ half of users were running Pandora with process integrity level High (and without having to change a thing or use Run as Admin menu), while the other half have modal error dialog (with scary undertones) and have to change the shortcut via elaborate scheme go figure.]
