DMX-Workshop is our free-of-charge Windows application for monitoring and configuring Art-Net devices. The software requires Administrator permission to run. The installer for DMX-Workshop will attempt to auto-enable this for you, but it may fail depending on the configuration of your PC and your security settings.
To achieve manually, right-click the DMX-Workshop icon and select ‘run as administrator’. The right-click menu also accesses the properties dialogue which allows you to select DMX-Workshop to always run as administrator.

After Windows XP, Microsoft significantly changed the way in which application software can communicate with Windows. This means that in Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 10 some of our software products must be run in a special mode. This mode is called Windows XP compatibility mode with administrator rights. See the application note.
The products concerned are Mic-Edit and Switch-Edit.
Numerous Artistic Licence software products run in administrator mode. By default, Windows does not share mapped drives across user accounts. The following registry key will override this behaviour:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System EnableLinkedConnections =(dword)1
