  • Are  you starting gflags from an user-account, which has administrative rights?

    With kind regards

    Note:
        Please have in mind, when using gflags, very great care should be taken, for it may leave your pc in an unusable state.

  • Hi Leonard,

    Maybe you could click Debugging Tools for Windows, right-click Global Flags and then click Run as administrator.

    Since this issue is related to the Windows Debugger tool, I will move this thread to  

    Windows Desktop Debugging forum. Thanks for your understanding.
