On a new Windows 7 Pro install running QuickBooks, the user started having problems accessing their files, with various messages about insufficient rights, and weird errors that only Inuit would understand. However, I found that it works just fine if they do either of these:
1) Right click on the icon and choose 'run as administrator'.
2) Go to the advanced settings in the properties for the icon and change it to 'run as administrator'.
Again, both of these solutions make it run just fine. But I WOULD like to understand why this is, since the user is set up as an "administrator".
And, I need to know if there is a setting in Win 7 that would always run all programs "as administrator", without them having to do the above settings on individual icons. Is there a way? TIA
