If you don't want to run the software as administrator, start it from a
desktop shortcut without anything in the "Start in:" box or from the
Start Menu with your desktop referenced in the "Start in:" box. Quicken
does this, I believe, because of the Amyuni user rights and the fact it
has to be used through Quicken. I have not tested the latest Quicken
update (6)for this behavior.
