Minimizer doesn't work with game run as administrator

Question

Just like the topic says- When I run ET as administrator my minimizer doesn't work... Tried setting minimizer to run as administrator also see if that'd work but no luck... Anyone else have this issue or know of a fix for this? Thanks!

I run Tonka's program, W:ET Minimizer ,  as admin and have no trouble with Win 10.  I had no troubles with it on Win7, Vista or XP.  I should put it in my startup, as Tonka advised, lo those many years ago.   :)

 

BTW, with Win10, I can just click on the 'minimized' ET icon on the Taskbar to open ET again.  I only need to hit alt-Z to minimize ET while in the game.

 

ADDED:  I had installed it on Win7 before I updated to Win10.

Just download q3e minimizer, probably the best around here for it, without any issues and supports all windows OS for now.

Tried and it did not work for me, does the minimizer need to be run as administrator?

Thank Tonka for the upload! :)

 

 

Thanks for an upload of an alternate program.  No program works all the time for everybody on every computer!  :)
