Privileges on Microsoft Simulator

    Question

  • Hello, I need to run an application with administrator privileges, and to test it on Microsoft Simulator.

    I see that if I run this app - but this happens with any app, not only with mine, even if I execute a notepad requiring administrator privileges - I have an error telling "request not supported", as you can see in screenshot attached.

    What is the problem, and how to solve it? (I already tried to execute the simulator as administrator, I'm using a local account on win 8.1 and I'm a member of administrators group).

    thank you

  • As the error says, elevation isn't supported. Windows Store apps always run low and cannot be elevated.
