Premiere Pro needs to be run as administrator. Various things fail otherwise.
Thanks for the reply. I understand things fail if PPro is not run as administrator.... any ideas what those things are. I have to "politely" explain to some IT people Monday afternoon why their "solution" won't work regarding this and the more specific I can get the better.
> any ideas what those things are.
Premiere Pro won't work. It's that simple.
I guess that's about the most simple but yet most descriptive of an answer. I'm going to assume this applies to CS4 also. I can't wait to see their "answer" for this. This is the same bunch of knuckle heads that thought instead of getting a decent RAID on the editing PC, I could use network storage and a 10/100 connection.
Thanks for the info. I should have figured but then I never even considered of trying this in first place.
Since this is part of your job, and IT is causing problems... where is your boss in all this?
Is IT so powerful that they are allowed to get in the way of people doing their work?
It's a very long story... let's just say that right now they have a lot of power because they are implementing electronic health records and every thing they say goes unless you can give undeniable proof.
This is where I would call in "the closer." It might be a bottle of single malt Scotch whiskey, a small-batch Bourbon, or maybe a 3rd growth Bordeaux. After handing it over to the IT person, I would calmly state, "I need administrative rights. Todd, the Jedi-master says so. I can be trusted."
