Eraser Portable and Admin privileges

Eraser Portable requires admin privileges for many of its functions. Is there a way to set the Portable Apps Platform to always run Eraser as admin?

Yes, you can right-click and specify "Run as Admin" when you launch Eraser from PAP, but I forget to do that if I haven't used Eraser in a while. What winds up happening is that I set everything up in Eraser, and then try to run the tasks. It then fails due to lack of privileges. Then I have to restart Eraser as Admin, and redo all my work. (The gets compounded by this bug: )

Another option would be to warn the user if they launch Eraser Portable without Admin privileges, and ask if they want to escalate permissions.

No Plans

There are no plans to implement such a feature at present. You can recompile the launcher if you'd like it to always use admin.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
