Now that's weird - Running Windows 10 I have some desktop
shortcuts that call a .bat file that runs phwmcmd.exe. For some
reason, as of today those shortcuts need to "run as administrator".
I don't expect anyone here to know why, but perhaps someone can
point me in a direction as to what to look at?   AFAIK nothing changed
on my system.... Is there some interaction with admin privs and PH
that I should know about?   Thanks!

Jeff,

Im not sure what would be causing it but if it recently changed, I would suspect some automatic update to Windows 10.

You might want to try right-clicking the shortcut, choosing Properties->Compatibility->Run this program as Administrator.

Just a thought.

Dave.

yes that fixes it Dave - was just surprised it was suddenly needed.
There wasn't a windows update (that i was aware of) just before things
changed - but yeah - with W10 who knows.
Ok - thanks!
