I think this is the best forum I have ever joined upto, I honestly thought I was pretty much alone in my love for the Amiga.

You don't need to run WinUAE in admin mode and you should not do so. Just store data files in a place where writing is allowed, for example C:\Users\<your user>\Documents or C:\Users\Public\Documents.

Only winuae.exe should go to C:\Program Files\WinUAE, all other files should be moved to C:\Users\Public\Documents\Amiga Files\WinUAE. That's where Amiga Forever stores all its files and WinUAE will find them there automatically, too.
