Run UE without Administrator Credentials, Windows


I need to know what permissions to give to a Restricted User (a default user who is not an Admin) to allow him to run UE ?

Currently he has Local Admin on his PC, but I’d prefer to lock him down and only give him what he needs to run UE successfully.

His PC is Windows 7, however we’re migrating to Win 10 in a couple of weeks.

I’ve have given Domain Users Read and Write to the Unreal directory in Program Files, but that hasn’t worked.

Any help is most appreciated.

I think you will need permission for folders named EPIC* and UNREAL* on %APPDATA% and %LOCALAPPDATA% too, the engine INI settings are stored there.
