UiPath accessing Task Manager error (Cant run UiPath as admin)


I am trying to get UiPath to access Task Manager. However, I am getting this error message.
“cannot access target process elevated privileges might be required. Try running the UiPath application as an administrator.” This post says I need to “Run as Admin”. So I did.

What I am trying to achieve:
I am trying to Open task manager, click “Users” tab (see my previous post).

When I run UiPath as Admin on the VM I get the below (see image). It doesn’t recognise the licence? (or something else). I am still logged in as same user. I am an admin on VM also.

Side note: I can access task manager using my community licence on my normal login.


Any assistance is appreciated :blush:
