Difference in running program Administrator or normal user?



I've written a simple program (logged in as administrator), in which an LED control is turned on when a process starts, and off when the process ends, a sort of Busy-indicator.

I switched to a normal user, and now the LED control does not operate anymore... Sometimes I can turn it on, but not in the required function...


Where does the difference come from?? What else does it affect, aside from LED controls?


Many thanks,

The user account privileges should not affect CVI UI objects. Are you sure it is not that the application needs privileges to check if the process is running? Does the code that alters the value of the LED ever run? Could you post code that demonstrates this?
