I set my nephews up with User accounts on their bedroom computers.
This is fine for the most part but once a week or so Fortnite tries to update. This requires admin privileges and hence adult/Admin involvement.
I've tried creating a Fortnite shortcut using 'runas' but this apparently hasn't worked. I imagine there must be a component separate from the game executable that requires admin privileges for the update to occur.

Can anyone think of a way to let Fortnite update in a User account?

It seems as though the _runas_ shortcut I set up is requesting an admin password.

You used to be able to store the admin password with /savecred. Massive security hole, but probably not a problem for family members. Unfortunately, I have read that Microsoft has disabled that in various versions of Windows 10, so you would have to try it and see.
