Solution 2: Modify user permission
The reason may be related to the user permission setting. We need to modify the registry, please see the following:
- Click on the Start menu in the bottom left corner, search for "Regedit".
- Click "Regedit" to run Windows registry.
- Go to the specific directory to modify value EnableLUA
Find the directory on the left and open directories in the following order: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Policies > System or alternatively, you can directly input Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System in the path column.
- Modify the EnableLUA value.
Find the EnableLUA item in the list, double click on the item and change the value from 1 to 0, then reboot the device, re-open Eagle to see if the problem has been solved.
