Run .exe Files As Administrator (Windows Vista/7 & 8)

Overview:

How do I run a program as the Administrator in Vista or Windows 7?

How do I run a program as the Administrator in Windows 8 and 10?

 


Solution:

Occasionally Windows 7 and Vista users will need to run key Holdem Manager Programs as an Administrator.

 

Right click the following files and set them all to "Run as Administrator."
 
  • HoldemManager.exe
  • hudfuncapps.exe
  • hmupdate.exe (this only exists during an update)
  • tablescannerdllloader.exe
  • Poker site .exe file
  • Postgres.exe
  • pg_ctl.exe
  • tableninja.exe

 


Run As Administrator Step by Step Directions:

  1. Go to C:\Program Files\HoldemManager2 (Program Files (x86) if you have the 64bit version)
  2. Right click HoldemManager.exe and choose "Properties".
  3. Go to the Compatibility Tab and select "Run this program as an Administrator".
  4. Do the same for other files listed. Postgres files are in C:\Program Files\Postgres\Version\bin (Program Files (x86) if you have the 64bit version)

With Windows 8, sometimes the Compatibility tab is missing. To run as administrator, either right-click the Stars setup file and install it as administrator, or run the compability troubleshooter.

Right-click the pokerstars.exe (and update file). Click Troubleshoot Compatibility.
