I've been using Windows 7 for many years. I just purchased a new machine about a week ago. I installed all my traditional applications (MS Office, VS2015, SolidWorks, Matlab, ...). Friday everything was going just fine after a week of use.
However, yesterday VS2015 and SolidWorks suddenly required 'Run as Administrator' to function properly. Seems suspicious.
- Why would this change 'overnight'?
- Does it imply an inconvenient Windows update?
- People 'say' that 'good software' should never require 'Run as Administrator'. Did Microsoft mess up their own VS2015? Is SolidWorks not 'good software'?
- Does it imply something more insidious like a virus?
