What caused the change?

When I opened Directory Opus 12.2 this afternoon the program behaved differently and the display was different. Was there an update in the last 24 hours?
The difference in behavior was that it required that I enter the Administrators password (I regularly run without administrator privileges). The display difference was in the arrangement of the directories. (Libraries was at the top of the tree now it's at the bottom). All Mapped drives are lost. I suspect a configuration file is lost or some such. Any clues?

It sounds like something has configured Opus on your system to run as administrator, which is probably causing the other issues. Following the How to turn off "Run as Administrator" steps in the FAQ should hopefully fix it.

Jon, that was it. The instructions for turning it off worked like a charm. Thanks
