  • Installation under Windows User mode

    I attempted to install BC 4.1.9 on Windows 10 running in user mode. It asked whether for me or everyone. I selected everyone. It asked whether to install at C:\users\joe\AppData\Local\Beyond Compare 4. I proceeded and it failed to write to the registry.
    I then ran the installation exe from an administrator authorized command window. It properly installed under Program Files. BC4 was then available when I restarted Windows Explorer.
    Installation under user mode should install under Program Files, asked for administrator authorization.

    Thank you for the feedback. Asking for administrator authorization from within the installer based on the install type is on our todo list for a future version.
