Fraps admin rights?
« on: June 03, 2011, 01:52:44 PM »
OK, so I don't have admin on my Vista computer. I just downloaded Fraps and Idon't want my parents to put the UAC code in every time I was to record, as they take 5-10 mins to even bother. Is there any way to make it so I don't need admin rights to start up Fraps all the time?

Simple steps, please. Thanks!

That's not gonna happen. -_-

I saw something in 'Properties' in the safety tab about the permissions. I put myself to be allowed to run it but it still doesn't work.

anyone over the age of twelve shouldnt have to have parental controls on their computer. Tell your parents you want to know the password. I mean, what the heck are you gonna do to it? You probably know more about computers than they do anyway.
You got my vote for RA2 Wizard. Always and forever.

IKR, they only put it on for the Time Limits. -_-

Thinking about it, I could just access the built-in admin account via command prompt...

FRAPS needs admin rights because it hooks into system functions in order to capture a video.
