[GUIDE] Start SWTOR without UAC

[ Edited ]

Each time you start SWTOR, a User Account Control message appears asking if you want to allow the program to start.



Here I explain how you can deactivate this.


Prerequisite: You must be logged in as administrator when you start the game.



1. Press the Windows Key + R (at the same time) and type "taskschd.msc" (without "") in the inputbox




2. On the left click on "Task Scheduler Library"




3. Right-click in the middle and select "Create New Task"




4. Type in the textbox Name "SWTOR" (without "")




5. Check "Run with highest privileges".




6. Click on "Actions" and then on "New" below




7. Type into "Program/Script" (Default):

for 32bit: "C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Bioware\Star Wars-The old Republic\launcher.exe" (with "")

for 64bit: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Bioware\Star Wars-The old Republic\launcher.exe" (with "")

If you have saved SWTOR in another location, please enter it.




8. Click on OK


9. On your desktop, create a new shortcut




10. Type into the inputbox the following: "schtasks.exe /Run /TN SWTOR" (without "") and click on Next




11. Type in any name and click Finish




12. (optional) Set an icon for the shortcut (for example, the SWTOR icon)




13. Start SWTOR in the future with the new shortcut.


I hope, it helped you!
