How can I use my own macros on Vista that came already installed on my laptop? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work at home as a medical transcriptionist and have to be able to use my macros for my business.  The only way that I can use my macros is to turn off my user account control. 

    Why is Vista set you this way, and how can I use my macros without having to turn off my user account control?

  • Hi,


    Could you run the program as an administrator? To run a program as an administrator, follow these steps:

    1.  Right-click the icon that you use to run the program, and then click Run as administrator. 

    2.  When you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the administrator password, or click Continue. 

    If the program will not run in Windows Vista unless you disable UAC completely, perhaps it starts a second program. In this scenario, you can try to upgrade your program to the latest version to see if it helps. Or you have to disable UAC to run the program. You can ask the software designer for further help.
