Can't run RAM disk as Admin   15 November 2013, 06:56

Hello

RAM Disk always says "You're running this application as a regular user and you cannot change any settings". I'm running it as admin. Tried right-click -> run as Administrator, tried to run from the elevated prompt, tried compatibility settings. All the same. Re-install does not help also.

Windows 8.1 x64, RAM Disk 3.4.2.

Try opening c:\ProgramData\SoftPerfect\RAMDiskWS\RAMDiskWS.xml and changing from
<useraccess>false</useraccess>
to
<useraccess>true</useraccess>
Then restart the computer.

The above advice is 8 years old and was for a much older version. For the current version the file is
%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\SoftPerfect\RAM Disk\ramdisk.xml

Please see "RAM Disk requires administrative privileges" article for more details.
