SciTE - pressing F5 or F7 invokes RunAs dialog

2 posts in this topic

Hi!

Windows XP Pro SP2, SciTE v1.76, latest version of AutoIT:

Installed AutoIT and SciTE to default locations on a PC using the installer routines. Used administrator account to do the installation but my normal 'work' account does not have admin rights on this machine.

When running SciTE with the non-admin account, pressing F5 or F7 in SciTE invokes a Run As dialog asking "Which user account do you want to use to run this program?". Choosing my current user closes the dialog for a few seconds and then it reopens again. If I select the admin account and enter the admin password the script runs normally.

If I run SciTE as administrator the Run As dialog does not appear.

I am also able to compile and/or run a script from the script file icon's context menu without it requesting an admin account.

Anybody know why SciTE needs an admin account to be able to compile or run a script? Does it use some obscure temporary file location? Or is there some WinXP security feature that prevents one program launching another? So far I have not found anything.

Thanks

Andy

Aha!

After more digging around I found that AutoIt3Wrapper has a #RequireAdmin compiler directive. I guess that answers my question. Pity it doesn't provide a little more information at run time.
