Slav, I understand why you'd want EP to run as admin, so that other normal processes can't spy on it. However, all apps that are run as Admin have the ability to spy on all other apps, including those running as Admin. (Since you're forcing us to run EP as admin, by default any process that EP starts is automatically started as admin.)

I strongly recommend that you change it to have eve run without Admin rights!

Much simpler. EP should have admin rights to change eve launcher window size under windows 10. I added windows 8 to the condition to start EP as admin just in case. Use windows 7 to avoid those problems and to make your bot more secure.

What advantages of windows 7:

1) Bot is developing under windows 7. I find all bugs under windows 7 during my own tests. Win8/10 bugs revealed after I receive report only.
2) Only windows 7 allows to switch parent process of a eve launcher to be explorer, like you started eve launcher from desktop shortcut. In windows 8/10 parent process of a launcher is EP process.
3) Bot dont need admin rights under windows 7.
4) There is another security advantage of windows 7 I dont want to post publicly. If CCP start to detect bots programmatically, we all will have to switch our system to windows 7 in order to avoid detection.
