Using Mixer from a non-admin account

    Might not be this. Try the installer again and see where it wants to put the library directory. (Maybe there's a way to view that without the installer?)

    I think by default it puts it in a shared directory, that might be causing this depending on permissions.

    Hi DrJosh999

    Thanks for the report. 

    I'll need your log file to investigate the issue. 

    • Kindly launch Mixer at your end with non-admin account.
    • If the problem persists, close Mixer
    • Navigate to: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\LocalLow\Quixel\Quixel Mixer\Player.log 

    And share your log file with me.

    I have been having the same issue, I have to run as Admin in order to download the programme and it works when I run it the first time but once I close and reopen Mixer it just freezes on the main page. I think it has something to do with having to run as admin to download it or It's an issue with my path location But if it is then how would I go about changing my path location if Mixer is just frozen on the main page?
