ClipboardFusion running as Administrator

Is ClipboardFusion running as administrator? I guess it does because hotkeys for macros created by another program (not running as admin) are not running inside the CF windows.

Is it required for CF to run as admin?

Hi Jean,

ClipboardFusion should be running with normal user rights, and auto-elevating when needed. You can double check this by opening Task Manager > Details > Right click a column header and click "Select Columns" > enable "Elevated" > check to see if the ClipboardFusion Process has "Yes" in that column.

Thanks!

You are right. But hotkeys/macro created with AutoHotkey do not work in CF windows (as it does when an app is running in elevated mode). Can you see another reason?

Hi Jean,

Ah, since ClipboardFusion is running within the Program Files folder, it's running with a "High" integrity level, so you will need to launch other applications as administrator to interact with it.

You could also move ClipboardFusion out of Program Files, but I wouldn't recommend that :)

Thanks!
