Administrative Access Required
« on: January 05, 2015, 09:38:11 AM »

I am currently looking for a fix to a problem with Tournament Director. As I view the program I can see that it will not run unless the user has administrative rights. I am currently wondering if there is a workaround or fix in place for this issue. I have base level users that need access to the TD program and cannot be given administrator rights. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Without admin access, the TD cannot install the Microsoft Active-X control needed to access the file system, nor access the appropriate areas of the registry needed for license management and related tasks.  It's an unfortunate requirement to be sure, but I don't know of any workarounds.
