'File not found' in Win7 when editor 'Run as Admin'

Post by *gbertus » 2009-12-07, 11:06 UTC

Win7 prohibits editing files in folders such as 'Program Files' etc unless you run your editor (like Notepad++) as administrator. If you enable that in the properties of the editor executable and press F4 you get a 'File not found' error.

Circumvention is to run TC as administrator but that is not always the preferred way.

BTW, it is not a preferred way to run editor always with admin rights:)

I don't know if this is a bug but if I need to start editor with admin rights, I use buttonbar button with command "sudo.exe" and parameters "..path_to_editor" %P%N. Here sudo.exe is my little tool for elevating apps, you may find it here.
