Should the Installer Be Run as Admin?
« on: May 05, 2018, 01:56:52 pm »
Hi all,

New here and just did a search and found no info regarding whether the installer should be run as admin.

(Win 7, Installer: codeblocks-17.12mingw-setup.exe)

And after installation, should the IDE be run as admin?

Thanks!

Generally you want to run the installer as admin. I think we have a version which doesn't require it.
After installation it should be possible to run cb with your regular user.
