I have UAC disabled because it is annoying and causes more problems that it could ever possibly solve, at least for me.
Here is yet another problem, and it seems to be due to a recent update as I don't remember it in the past.
Even with a MS account, I can't use the store because UAC is disabled. How can I get around this?
Short term I can just enable it, reboot, use store, disable it, reboot and be on my way but there has to be a better way (other than MS getting their software completely right - like that will happen anytime, ever)
Edit: Apparently this is far more of an issue than I originally thought. Now
every(?)many metro apps requires UAC.
Anyone aware of the update this got rolled in with?
Thankfully netflix isn't affected which is the only metro app I use at the moment.
What I see:
Event Log info:
Activation of app winstore_cw5n1h2txyewy!Windows.Store failed with error: This app can't be activated when UAC is disabled. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information.
