RVL200339: How to Configure RayEval to Run Without Elevated Rights

If using RayEval 5.1 or later it is possible to configure RayEval to run without elevated rights. In order to do this, the following steps need to be taken. 

  1. Make a backup of the RayEval.exe.manifest file which can be found in the installation folder (by default C:\Program Files (x86)\RayPackStudio\RayEval).

  2. Open the RayEval.exe.manifest file using a text editor.

  3. Change the line <requestedExecutionLevel level="requireAdministrator" uiAccess="false" /> to <requestedExecutionLevel level="asInvoker" uiAccess="false" />
    Be aware that the line also appears as part of a comment. This comment does not need to be changed.

  4. Save the RayEval.exe.manifest file. If you installed RayEval / RayPack Studio to a per-machine location (for example C:\Program Files (x86)) and UAC is enabled, then admin rights may be required to overwrite the existing RayEval.exe.manifest file.

RayEval can now be started without administrative rights. Please note that some functions may not work correctly due to operating system security and integrity levels.
