How to run MapInfo Professional as an Administrator

1) use Windows Explorer to navigate to the MapInfo Professional folder, called "Professional" by default.
The default PATH for 32 bit versions is :
C:\Program Files (x86)\MapInfo\Professional
For 64-bit versions, the path is
C:\Program Files\MapInfo\Professional
2) in that Professional folder, right-click on the application file "MapInfow.exe"
and click on the "Properties".
For 64-bit versions, the file is named "MapInfoPro.exe"
3) at Properties dialog, go to the "compatibility" tab and at bottom of that tab
place a check in the "run this program as an Adminstrator" checkbox and click OK thru the dialogs.

4) Now whenever you launch Pro from any short-cut, it will  "run as an Administrator"

Note: for some user's, they will need to engage their IT dept. to make this change.

You can make this change for any program's executable....
