The attached batch file will do the following for you:
- Create a normal unprivileged user account. The Username/Password is Yoda/Password1.
- Set the registry key to remove Yoda from the logon screen. (We're just using it to launch Rift.)
- Set permissions on the Rift folder to give Yoda full control. (for patching)
- Create a batch file on your desktop to run Rift with the Yoda account. (using PsExec)
- Set the registry key to prevent the Rift Error Handler from running.
- Copy your old %AppData%\Rift configuration files to the new account.
Note: You can find/replace Yoda/Password1 with whatever name and password you like -- stay away from spaces and special characters.
- You must have Windows Vista 64-bit or Windows 7 64-bit. I may write 32-bit instructions later.
- You must have Rift installed into the default folder. (or you can find/replace with your path)
- Download and install Debugging Tools for Windows 64-bit into the default folder.
CDB.EXE should be in "C:\Program Files\Debugging Tools for Windows (x64)".
- Download PsExec.exe and put it somewhere in the path. I suggest just dropping it in your C:\Windows\System32 folder.
- Rename INSTALL.TXT to INSTALL.CMD.
- Right-click INSTALL.CMD and choose Run As Administrator. Delete INSTALL.CMD when finished.
- Any time you want to run Rift, launch the RIFT.CMD file on your desktop.
Note: The Windows security model will only allow a normal user to see their processes (.exe names) and the processes being run as services. Run Cheat Engine, AutoIt, Olly, etc. with your regular administrator account and they will be hidden from Trion.
- See the Prerequisites section.
- Everything is assumed to be on the C: drive. Change this in the install.cmd if you need to.
- Disable User Account Control (UAC) in Control Panel if you have major problems.
- Check Task Manager to verify Rift is running as the new account.
- Sometimes the OS will create a new user account folder with the PC name appended. (e.g. C:\Users\Yoda.MyPC)
If you don't see your characters at logon:
1) Start / Run / %appdata%
2) Copy the Rift folder
3) Paste the Rift folder into the path for your new unprivileged user account. (overwrite)
- PM me if you have any problems.
04/10 Edit - Accidentally left CALC.EXE in there previously which I was using for testing.
