Run an Application without administator privileges

Post by ThijnJD » Tue Jan 05, 2021 11:05 am

Wine automatically runs applications with administrator privileges.

For an application that i'm trying to install, I constantly get the message:
Please install using a normal amount instead of an administrator account.

Is it possible to disable administrator privileges in wine? If so, how?

Thanks in advance!
