Hi all,

The UAC popup that occurs every time you start TNG was getting really annoying. Here is how to disable it for just TNG and not globally which isn't a great thing to do security wise. You need to install some software from Microsoft that is part of the ADK (Application Deployment Kit). Get the version that matches your Windows version here:


When you install it uncheck everything except the first option (Compatibility Administrator).

Then follow the instructions here.

How to Disable UAC for Specific Applications | Windows OS Hub (http://woshub.com/how-to-disable-uac-for-specific-applications/)

The executable you want to permit is "C:\Program Files\PlanetCNC\PlanetCNC64.exe" if you have a default install.

You also need to change the permissions on the directory "C:\Program Files\PlanetCNC\Profiles" to allow the logged in user to have Modify rights.

Hope this helps someone.
