  • The requested operation requires elevation.

    Any idea why I get this message Cannot load D:\ALL_UPDATE.EXE The requested operation requires elevation. when I try to start the debugger on this project??

    Howdy, David!

    As in, Run as Administrator elevation, yes?

    I've not gotten that exact message but have gotten variations on it.

      Probably due to the file name ALL_UPDATE.EXE , you need to change it to something else probably ALL_getup2date.exe ?

      any filename such as INSTALL , Setup will bound to require an elevation of rights
