This is seen mostly in Office Applications, AutoCAD or  Adobe. There could be two scenarios to this issue

  1. Compatibility Issue
    • Are you using an older version of the program compared to your Operating System? If yes; locate the exe (e.g. word.exe ; excel.exe) file of the program from the Program Files folder.
    • Right-Click and set the compatibility mode to an Older OS Version
  2. Are you running the Program as Administrator?
    • Right click on the exe file and click the compatibility tab
    • At the bottom ‘Uncheck’ the Run as Administrator checbox if ticked.
    • If this option is greyed out; click Change Settings for all Users to enable it.
    • Restart the computer and retry; the error should be gone
