We have several school computers that have LO 5.2.0 running on 64bit Windows 10 1607 Anniversary Update. Even before the Anniv Update, the Windows Standard Accounts cannot start LO without right-clicking and selecting "Run As Administrator". An Administrator account can run LO fine with no problems.

I cannot find documentation anywhere that says LO requires an Admin account to run it. Is there a bug (or is this expected behavior) or any tips/tricks/suggestions?

Thanks much!

I have a similar/same problem. I have a new 64 bit Windows 10 ASUS computer. Windows 10 came with the computer. Now recognizing the problem as a user or as the administrator, I receive "The Requested Operation Requires Elevation" message when trying to open any Word document. The Windows User Account message requiring the Administrator Password occurs when opening an *.odt file. all files were created in Windows 7.
