    Happened to me also. But it stopped working even before 18.2.2. I think it was with 18.2.1.
    And I am not sure it's due to Crimson components. Looks to be permission issue.

    !!!!!!!!! Anyway I fixed it like this:

    Seems like UAC issue, not a permissions itself.

    I have UAC disabled and never had such issue. You know, UAC is in fact a virtualized "sandboxed" environment, so it could be causing some issues from it's own nature.

    It fixed itself for me, haven't done anything. I don't use UAC.

    Weird but at least it works now.

    UAC is enabled by default.

    This problem with ReLive could be caused by Windows (latest update) re-setting audio controller. And... one restart after update wasn't enough apparently, notifications said this PC will need to be restarted again to finish setting up audio. With previous update I lost my surround 7.1, this time (16299.248) it only reset room correction.

    What would you possibly gain by disabling UAC?

    Well, nothing. You will just disable virtualization/sandboxing for apps running with administrator privileges. It can resolve many issues with older apps, but it's a potential security hole for unexperienced users.

    Oh, I know about losses, you’d break about ten (if not more) Windows features with UAC disabled; yes, most are security oriented but not all.

    I was wondering what one can possibly gain that is so important that people choose to molest their system this much. Issues with older programs? What are they? Why can’t they be fixed in other ways? Why one can’t live without these programs whose developers clearly ain’t interested fixing?

    Last I checked, the year is 2018, not 1995. Times changed, there’s no excuse in runnin' things old (kool kids) ways.

    Doesn't work quite like that. It is the same like for example - disabling unnecessary services:

    You read the service's description and it controls some hardware or protocol or whatever that you don't even have and will not have in the foreseeable future.
    You disable it. Everything works fine. You forget about it. 5 months later a patch comes which relies on the service, and it silently brakes your system. You install a driver which relies on the patch and you end up with unstable system.
    This is totally hypothetical, and tbh I dunno if it's even plausible, but the idea is very simple:

    TLDR
    No OS, no piece of software, is bug-free. The more buttons you push, the further you deviate from defaults, the sooner you will discover a bug.

    Well, disabling UAC is not needed in 1st place anyway. (Except if you are playing DooM!)
    It is more than enough to take its slider and just turn off notifications. It will still live in background, doing all its important things.
    It will just stop sh*tting all over your screen 50 times a day. Back when MS introduced it, it was good idea to disable it. Today, it does not eat much of ram, nor CPU cycles.
    Compared to running web browser in background, entire windows make no noticeable performance impact.

    Middle Earth SoW, Nier Automata and Quantum Break. Test these and the result was 5-6 more average fps.

    Nier Automata MAX Settings, No AA, FAR high AO
    SoW High Settings
    Quantum Break High Settings, Global Illumination Medium, Upscale ON

    All 1080p, 52-60 fps all time. Enhanced Sync, FRTC 60

    Before 46, 47 - 60 fps ...

    Windows 10 x64 FCU

    Very happy with this drivers :):)

    List all the benefits of “using” a Windows PC with UAC completely disabled with hack. Be specific.

    What are you guys doing that UAC pops up 50 times a day? Here I have 6 PCs joined in domain; 2 loaded with games, 3 servers. Somewhat lazy day to day admin duties, maintenance, updates, upgrades. UAC set to max everywhere. Not once UAC was a problem. [strike]I even think it doesn't pop now starting Task Manager.[/strike] edit: correction - nope TM shouldn't do it, something else now does not pop UAC.

    And how does one even compare performance difference with and without UAC? What is the method? What performance counters would you use?

    Not being procreating bothered by it when I am doing anything.
    I know what I am doing with my pc. No one else uses it.
    Its annoying and pisses me off. Its even more of a pain in the ass if you are trying to do a hybrid physx system on Win 8+ OS.
