Preventing "User Account Control" uac popup in Windows7

Postby Friar Broccoli » Thu Jan 19, 2012 2:24 am

Hello;

After trying several quite drastic methods for preventing the "User Account Control" uac window ["Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer" - yes/no] from popping up in Windows7 (without actually uninstalling the uac - which I would like to keep for the security benefits) every time gimp runs I discovered:

http://registry.gimp.org/node/25106

In my case, I just uninstalled Gimp 2.6 (then in "C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0")
and then reinstalled it in
C:\WinBin\GIMP-2.0
and the problem vanished !

Hope others find this helpful.
