Epic Games Launcher requires administrator (elevated) privileges to run games such as GTA V.
I don't want to give my son those privileges, and I don't want to always be around to start the game.
The executable that gets run resides at
C:\Program Files\Epic Games\GTAV\Redistributables\Rockstar-Games-Epic.exe.
What I have done is to change ownership of
C:\Program Files\Epic Games and everything inside it to the
users user group. And have have given that user group Full Control of that folder and everything inside of it.
However, the executable's icon still has the yellow/blue shield shown over it. And it still requires the extra privileges to start running.
I know how to get the shield there for an application by using Troubleshooter For Compatibility, then stating the executable needs admin privileges, and then Windows would alter the executable to make it require admin privileges. ... But now I need to do the exact opposite and remove the administrator requirement from the executable.
How do I do this?
(I know the changing of ownership and security settings might not be enough, and that the executable might be instable if I get it to run without admin privileges. But I just want to see it run wihtout admin privileges first.)
.exefile. The keyword (not documented here) is
requestedExecutionLevel. // The compatibility troubleshooter saves its changes to the registry (keyword
AppCompatFlags). It can only be used to add privileges.
