Depending on the User Permission set by the original administrator, YAPI will require permission to properly write into the application.

A simple workaround is to run YAPI as an Administrator. In some cases, the office may want to simply disable this stopgap, especially when enabling automatic startup. The following will show how to edit the permissions for the current user to allow for free access to YAPI. 

  1. On the desktop, right-click on the YAPI icon, then click on Properties from the dropdown.

  5. Attempt to open YAPI from the desktop without the Run As Administrator command to test the result.
