Unity Hub doesn't work with "Run this program in administrator mode"

    Hi there!

    On Windows 10, Unity Hub starts up as an empty window if I have "Run this program as an administrator" checked in the .exe properties. Strangely, it works when I right-click->Run As Administrator.

    My other problem right now is that I can't open up any Unity versions from Unity Hub that have "Run this program as an administrator" checked, even when I right-click->run as administrator for Unity Hub. I need to run Unity in administrator mode in order to make certain console builds.

    Not a huge deal since I can open the needed version myself, but I would love to see this fixed!

    This problem still persists. Unity needs to run as Admin else it cannot load Visual Studio, the Hub needs Admin else it cannot open Unity, but the Hub renders an empty window when run as Admin via the compatibility checkbox.
    Going back to opening Unity directly circumvents this.

    Still an issue. Surprised this hasn't been fixed given how often people need to run VS as administrator.

    This is a pretty bad bug. I'm trying to update sdks but unity needs admin access to do so.
