How to Run QuantShare without UAC Prompts?

Updated on 2014-01-23

Want to avoid UAC prompts when starting QuantShare?

Our friend Dave W. recently sent us instructions on how to simplify the process of avoiding UAC prompts.

The following files should make the process of avoiding UAC prompts easier.

After downloading and unzipping the above file -- a task scheduler XML file and a shortcut file (.lnk) -- all the user has to do is open the Windows task scheduler (type 'task' in the Windows 7 start menu), select the Import Task feature on the right side of the screen, and then import the XML file. The imported XML task allows the user to run the 64bit version of QuantShare with elevated privileges.

After clicking OK to save the imported task, the shortcut in the .zip file should launch the 64-bit version of QuantShare without a UAC prompt.

This assumes that QuantShare is installed on the following directory:
C:\Program Files\CTrading\QuantShare\

If this is not the case or if you want to avoid UAC prompts for the 32-bit version, open "RunQuantShare64_UAC.xml" file then update the "command" tag by replacing the path to QuantShare executable file ("QuantShare64" for the 64-bit version and "QuantShare" for the 32-bit version).

Here is how it works:
- The shortcut runs the "RunQuantShare64_UAC" task we have just created
- The task starts QuantShare
- Task has the "HighestAvailable" as runlevel value and thus can run without UAC prompts

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
