HiveMQ CE on Windows without admin rights

Hello all,

Although I know it is not optimal, I may have to deploy HiveMQ CE on Windows, and then on top of that, without administrative rights. The run.bat script warns against that, but everything seems to be working fine. I guess I can leave it like that, but I would like to know what kind of problems may I be facing in the future.

Thanks a bunch in advance!

Hi @bgu,
Basically it comes down to what kind of permissions the user you are running HiveMQ with has.
Specifically things like reading and writing to the file system or opening ports are necessary so the broker works without a hiccup.
If you make sure that your user has those kind of permissions, there shouldn’t be a problem.

Kind regards,
