Hello,

During the installation of windows embedded 7, a user named 'MYUSER' is created.
This user belongs to the "Admin" group.
From this user, I can change IP, disable drivers etc.

I have a shortcut to an application written by a collegue.
In the shortcut propertieis, the checkbox compatability->Run this program as an administrator is not set.

If it's not set, the application crashes. I do not understand why.
'MYUSER' is like 'Administrator' Why this checkbox is required ?
How can I bypass this ?

Thank you,
Zvika
