  1. Thank you. I was setting up a DOD secure host baseline configuration on my computer and all of the sudden, I got this message when I tried to run some apps. This fixed it.

  3. Hello Prajwal,
    Thank you for your post, would there be any reason why only 1 application is experiencing this UAC blocking? Mine starts happening when I revert back to the previous version of the app, after developer release a faulty update.

  4. This worked for Alienware AlienFX Editor. Previous solution was to open the exe from a command prompt, so it’s not like it was “secure” in the first place. Just annoying. Thank you.

  5. Fantastic. Thank you. Getting this error when trying to open software included with my mobo (Asus Aura), and running as admin every damn time is unacceptable. This nipped it in the bud!
