Windows 10 and UAC problem [message #50183] Sun, 19 August 2018 17:38 Go to next message

Hello,

I am not sure this is the right forum.

My UPP application packed with NSIS installer, install properly on Windows 10, 64 bit, multi user.
The problem: each time I run the application as normal user it keep asking the administrator password and complain about "unknown publisher".

I read it is the User Account Control of this stupid operative system but not how to solve the issue at level of software developer... if it can be solved.
Is there any way to become a "known publisher" and avoid such annoying problem to the user?

Thanks,
Luigi

Make sure that your application name doesn't contain words like "install", "setup" etc.
Add separated manifest file or embed manifest in the application file using resource manager.
I guess that section "requestedExecutionLevel" should solve your problem.

Hello,

I just read about your problem and I think you must sign your installer with valid certificate (You need to have your own trusted one). However, I never did it, so treat my opinion as a clue.

Sincerely,
