Dear Miniscope community,

I encountered an issue when running the Miniscope-DAQ-QT software under Win10 Pro. When I execute the software the initialization window reports that no compression codec is avaiable and that instead all the supported ones are unavailable:

However, when I run the software as an administrator most of the compression codecs are available and the software can properly start and record from a miniscope:

I reproduced this behavior on 3 independent computers running on Win10 Pro with the versions 1909, 2004 and 20H2. For all of these computers I used a local account that has admin status. This issue does not depend on a miniscope DAQ being connected and being found by the compuer.

So, there is possibly be some security setting that messes with the DAQ software.

I hope this info might be helpful!

Lukas

Dear Daniel,

Thanks for your reply.
I realized that the issue is only present when executing the DAQ software from the search bar. It seems like the path to the program folder is not passed properly when launched in this way. Executing the software from within the folder works just fine and does not require special privileges.
