Thread: Help me undo what caused the "Run a legacy CPL elevated" prompt...

    Help me undo what caused the "Run a legacy CPL elevated" prompt...

    Today from the control panel I ran the "NVIDIA Control Panel" program. After
    I closed the program Windows asked me if the program opened correctly (which
    it did). I ACCIDENTALLY chose the equivilent of "no", and now each time I
    run the program I get prompted to "Run a legacy CPL elevated" before it opens
    the program. Is there a way to un-do what I did so it opens without the
    prompt like it used to?

    The program is also available by right-clicking the desktop and clicking
    "NVIDIA Control Panel" from the shell menu. When I launch it this way it
    doesn't do the "legacy" prompt, it's only when I launch it from the Control
    Panel.

    I know it doesn't make a difference since the app opens and closes just fine
    either way, but I'd like to make it the way it was. Thanks!

    Right-click on the executable file, Properties, Compatibility.

    OK, I found the file. It's located at C:\Windows\System32\nvcpl.cpl

    I tried right clicking and looking around but I can't find anything that I
    can "un-check" to get it to no longer need the "run a legacy CPL elevated"
    prompt. It only needs this prompt when launched from the control panel, not
    when it's launched directly or from right-clicking on the desktop.

    Is there a way to re-set it back to how it was when it's launched from
    control panel?

    Sorry, I was looking at a .exe file. It seems that a .cpl file lacks the
    compatibility settings that .exe has. I don't have any further advice on this.

    Search the registry looking for the primary part of the CPL name (ex: sample.cpl - use only sample).

    You will probably find the name numerous times but one will have an entry in the right-hand panel with a data value of RUNASADMIN.

    Click on the name entry in the right-hand panel to highlight it and delete this entry.

    You should no longer receive the message.
