Hello all

If you are finding this "Error 740: The requested operation requires elevation"shows, it means that WinZip you are using has been configured to Start as administrator.

Regularly this has been completed to allow WinZip to make Zip files in sheltered folders, for example those within Program Files.

Thanks  a lot.

To fix this, try to run the application under the Administrator account and turn off the User Account Control (UAC) by following the steps below:

1. Click the Start button and then click Control Panel. 

2. Type UAC on the search box and then click it to turn the UAC on or off.

3. Untick the UAC check box and then click OK. This will work on both Vista and Win 7.

You need to keep your computer up-to-date. Install all the updates available.

Dear User,
 
 
You can solve this problem by simply turning off your user account control.
 
You can easily do this by using a simple command in your Command prompt
 
1.Open an elevated Command prompt as the administrator
 
And run the following commands
 
%windir%System32cmd.exe /k %windir%System32reg.exe ADD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
 
 
 
Thank you
