ASC Monitor

Recommended Posts

Hey, all....I need a little advice asap on this pc I'm setting up for my wife for Christmas. 🙂

Specifically, it's a Dell laptop(can provide more details if requested) running Windows 11. I've been using ASC(free) for many years on our computers at home, and I'm a disabled(from strokes) I.T. pro, so I should be able to follow even complex constructions 🙂

Anyway, I've got both my wife's account(std. user in windows) and my own admin account on here.  When I login with my admin acct., the monitor (at the top riight corner of the screen) appears fine.  But when logged on as my wife, it won't run.  Even when I try to run it by launching monitor.exe in the program files x86 folder, and even when I try to run it with my admin user's privileges.

What am I missing here? I'm really trying to get this all setup in time for it to be ready to give her on Christmas(in 2 days), so PLEASE HELP! 🙂

Thanks much!

Scannan, thanks for replying.  If I read those posts correctly, though, they're referring to creating shortcut icons, not so much about the program(monitor) not running, whatsoever for non-admin users.  Unless, is the point that there are other permissions that weren't created when I installed it?

Thx. again!

Yes, I think it is a permissions issue. Particularly the second article talks about this, and about installing the program in

the All Users Folder. I think the solution is in one of those articles. Maybe another read of them may help.

I found the links here....maybe there is a better explanation there.....https://www.google.com/search?q=can+one+program+run+on+two+different+accounts+on+win+11&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b

Literally hours later, I got it working (I tried explicitly giving her user full permissions to its folder, but that still didn't work.  What eventually worked was:

1)Fully uninstalling it(including the checkboxes to remove the 'optional' things.

2)Sign on as admin and make her user an administrator

3)Reboot, login as her, then Install the program while still logged on as her.

4)reboot, login as my admin user, change her user back to a std user, reboot and login with her user..


Can you say "bug" in the program in 'windows 11'? 🙂
