I downloaded ADX_IE_Shared_Memory C# version, it works well with administrator permission, but it doesn't without it.

It says "Access is denied"

Should I always launch IE with administrator permission?

Hello David,

In GlobalData.cas, replace the code line below

string outputPath = Path.Combine(
	Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.InternetCache), "Low");


with this one:

string outputPath = Path.Combine(
    Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.LocalApplicationData), "Low");


This location is allowed by Protected Mode; see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb250462(v=vs.85).aspx.

Note however that if Enhancing Protected Mode is enabled, this approach won't work.
