Razer Cortex needs admin access everytime for every session on non admin session

When opening a session Razer Cortex starts as mentionned in Windows Registry : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Key : RazerCortex : "C:\Program Files (x86)\Razer\Razer Cortex\RazerCortex.exe" -autorun
And when opening the session / starting : the program asks admin rights
It’s an issue for users (like children) that the don’t have admin rights :-).

Hey there!


Thank you for sharing your concern with us here. My name is Michelle and I am a member of the Razer Cortex technical support team. I am here to help you with your concern.


To ensure that all features of Razer Cortex are fully functional and can optimize your gaming experience, it is important to launch the program with administrative permission. This can be done by logging in to an admin account or granting admin permission to the program.


Without admin permission, most features of Razer Cortex may not be available or may not function properly. Therefore, it is highly recommended to launch the program with admin permission in order to fully utilize its features and improve your gaming experience.


We understand that it can be inconvenient to use our product on non-admin accounts, and we will work to improve this aspect of our software. Our team will review your feedback and explore ways to make our product more user-friendly for all types of accounts.
