I do not have Administrative Rights on my computer. Can I still install and use Scheduling Employees?

Yes, but you will need an Admin to set permissions for the SEW folder.

The latest Operating Systems (Vista, Windows 7 and 8) require Administrative Rights in order to make changes to any file in the Program Files/Program Files (X86) folders on your computer.  Without Admin Rights, the user will have Read-Only privileges, and Scheduling Employees will not save schedules properly, or schedules will disappear after a period of time.

For this reason, we require that you run the Setup file as an Administrator (right-click the Setup file, select Run as an Administrator). 

We realize that some organizations do not allow Administrative Rights on their computers for security reasons.  If you are a user wthout Admin Rights and need to install Scheduling Employees, please contact your IT department or Admin to see if they can set Read/Write permissions for just the SEW program file. If your SEW database resides on a network, you would need Read/Write permissions for that folder as well.

We are looking into ways to work around the need for Administrative Rights.  We will get back to you as soon as we can find a solution.

We appreciate your patience,

Jennifer Vassilatos

The Administrative rights issue was resolved permanently with SEW revision 4.5.19.  If you are running a version prior to revision 4.5.19, please login to the website and download and install the latest revision.
