  1. I tried not only your post, but also other blogs and forums methods without success.

    I found this.

    According to the link, after some windows updates, the application manifest will be not longer effective. I am not sure whether it is true or not. But I always see “User Account Control” dialog (on Windows v1903 + RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo).

    It does not work for me, i’m using Rad Studio 10.1 Berlin, how i can fix it?

    • If this is not working, the most likely cause is a typing error in the manifest file, perhaps case sensitivity.
      In RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin a custom manifest file is no longer required, instead, on the same manifest page simply select the “Auto Generate” option and check the new “Enable Administrator Privileges” check-box.
