Quicken "does not support run as administrator" error?

I use Quicken 2012 with Windows 7. When I log in to Quicken I now get a message saying Quicken "does not support run as administrator".   I never got this message before.  I logged into an account which has administrator rights.  I checked the properties and compatibility is not set to run as administrator.  Why does Quicken think I am running as administrator?

When you checked the Properties of the Quicken icon, did you also clear all checkboxes on the Change Settings For All Users?  This step is imperative, not a suggestion.  The reason you get this error is due to a "hangover" of a solution implemented to get an older version of Quicken to function properly on Windows 7 or Vista.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
