I recently installed Windows 8 on my computer. I have just one user, connected to a Microsoft account.
My problem is that many setup files (Chrome, Flash, Dropbox, just to mention a few), if launched with a double click, just don't start. If I right-click and choose run as administrator they run fine. Is this normal on Win 8, or there's a problem with my configuration?
I temporarily solved the problem by creating a new local account, but after some days the problem started again.
Installers that have problem include:
- The nVidia graphics driver installer
- Chrome setup
- Dropbox setup (I solved this by modifying the temp directory permissions allow read/write access to Users)
- Steam install (MSI installer) gives error 1723 "A DLL required [...] could not be run"
- Google Play music manager (if I run it as admin, the prorgam is installed but with graphical problems)
