Hullo Kay,
I'm glad you were able to narrow down the problem.
Thanks,
Stephan

Thanks for the prompt reply and good that you mention this, Kay.
I now remember that UAC was/is disabled on my systems, simply because SuRun is taking care of it quite nicely.
The W8 installation must have switched it back on.
Shall I try to switch it off again, just as an experiment, because in the end SuRun should co-operate with W8 UAC as it is.

More info:

RMB-click on application bar does not show option "Restart as Administrator" in the popup menu.

More details

Scenarios:
Start menu (Start8), RMB-click CCleaner, Start as Administrator (with shield icon), Surun dialogue pops up, I tick remember passwords as well as Always, CCleaner is started as Administrator
>>> Surun has elevated CCleaner, no icon in systray

Next time, Start menu (Start8), start CCleaner using the LMB-click, CCleaner is not elevated (I can tell by greyed out advanced option)
>>> So, "Always start this program..." appears not to be working

Next time start CCleaner with RMB-click, Start as Administrator (with shield icon), no dialogue, CCleaner runs in elevated mode.
>>> So, "remember passwords..." is working

Download some installer, say install_flash_player.exe, and start it from the explorer, the standard Windows UAC dialogue appears - not the SuRun-version
>>> So, "Automagically elevate..." appears not to be working

I hope this helps in reproducing things.

I decided to fully uninstall en re-install SuRun.
The problem remains.
Additional thing: No Surun icon in the system tray.

Subject: Windows 8 - need to type passwords all the time
Last week I upgraded my W7 netbook to W8 Professional, but I’m afraid to have to report that something has gone awry with SuRun.
In short it comes down to this: If I want to run something as Administrator, the surun confirmation dialogue comes up, but I still have to type in the password. The same happens when Surun automatically jumps in to elevate user rights of a program that should be elevated.
Now I've temporarily disabled SuRun, but that's not much fun either.
Does anyone have experiences with SuRun on W8?

FIX: "(Neu-)Start als Administrator" wurde in Fenstern mit nicht-standard-Titelleiste (Office, Chrome etc.) nicht dargestellt
Lovely!
Thanks,

For now I'll leave SuRun as it is until there's a captionless program that really needs to be restarted with elevated rights.
I used to use this quick switch to elevated rights, whenever Firefox had an update to install.
(I do understand your problem, though)

Another app without top border and as a consequence no drop-down menu "restart as Admin"

(BTW, if I placed this in the wrong forum-thread, please feel free to move it)

Dito Google Chrome (v11)
Dito IE 9

It probably has got something to do with the way these browsers don't have an upper border....?

I just installed FF 4 and I noticed that a right-mouse-button click on the top border of its window does not give me the menu option "Restart as Administrator"

Subject: Rebuild dialogs?
Kay,
Is there any timeline to the rebuild of the dialog structure?
It'd help me decide whether to give it a go now, or to wait a little while until the translation environment is more comfortable.

Subject: (Dutch) translation
Hallo Kay,

I noticed some additional strings have been included in SuRun.
If you like me to update the Dutch translations, then please feel free to send me the latest files.
