Message - 'The requested operation requires elevation.'

Applies to AQTime 8.81, last modified on January 18, 2022

This message appears when AQTime starts profiling an application that requires a higher privilege level for the run. Currently, AQTime cannot profile such applications.

To change the privilege level, modify the uiAccess attribute in the application’s manifest:

  1. Launch any text editor as Administrator.

  2. Open the application’s manifest in the editor. The manifest file has the name <application.exe>.manifest and is located in the same folder where the application's executable is. The manifest file has the XML format.

  3. In the manifest, find the requestExecutionLevel element and either delete the uiAccess attribute, or set it to false:


    <trustInfo xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">
          <requestedExecutionLevel level="asInvoker" uiAccess="false"/>
  4. Save the changes.
