All of my other machines are setup for Admin login.

But I have a need for a workstation with a standard Windows user (Windows 10).

When logged in as that user, NDI doesn't work. But if I use "Open as Administrator" to open vMix, it works. Of course, defeats the purpose if I have to give out Admin password.

Firewall is completely off to test.

It should, in theory, work with Standard user, right?

I found out exactly the same issue today. This is frustrating. Especially in a domain environment where standard users is the norm admins are the exception. Is this a bug or just the way windows is. I would expect a fully functional software even without admin rights.

As a short term measure, you don't need to give out the admin password. There is a process by which you can preset an application to run with admin rights, even though the current user is not admin.

This is only half way true. You would need to create a local admin account and use that user to apply the setting. On a domain level the administrator PW will (I hope for everyone) change regularly and will break after the change.

Anyway I still stick with my request to have a fully featured software even with restricted user rights.

Understood and agreed. I suspect that a good many users are not actually joined to a domain. Most especially if they are very portable.
