    Tableau desktop - can only run as administrator

    Geraldine Vaughan

      Hi Tableau community


      Tableau desktop 2018.3.2 64-bit on Windows desktop v10.


      I had to re-install after my laptop became flaky and needed to replace. I cleared the hard drive of the old laptop but not sure if i de-activated Tableau.


      On this new install, I can only launch Tableau by right clickng on Tableau and 'run as administrator'. It also regularly crashes at that point. I select 'send error report' and then it seems fine, no more crashing till the next time i open the program.


      BTW if i view product keys, it shows a key for Tableau creator which expires 22/5/19 (i am a student).


      Grateful for any clues why


      regards Geri
