Admin vs. Non Admin

  1. I have installed the Vitus track, as an admin I can select the track in game, but as a non admin not!

    As the non admin I still can browse the directory for the Vitus track.

    Any idea?

    As an Admin try to figure out the security rights on that folder.
    Make sure the usergroup 'Users' have change rights from rFactor all the way down to the locations folder (including Vitus)

    Security rights-> Right mouse on a folder and then properties. Click the security tab.
  3. Right hint but the solution is a little bit more tricky :D!

    The files apprear in green on the explorer (saw this already for GTRe, but there the track worked). Googled it and found that this means the files are encrypted. To take this away you need also to go to the file properties, under the advanced attributes, uncheck the 'Encrypt to secure data' and afterwards the files are not green anymore and rF sees them also in not admin mode.

    So this is a Vitus issue (the archive is anyway a little bit odd).
