I need to run HWiNFO as a normal user.
When trying to start it i get the following message cant install theHWiNFO driver!

Is it possible to run it as a normal windows user?

No. Only Administrators can install/access a kernel driver, there are security reasons for that and no exception.

i started the program whitcmd runas /user:tadmin "C:\Program Files\HWiNFO64\HWiNFO64.EXE" but ishared memory will not start then?

Also can you use task scheduler to start the program as admin for a normal user?
The task scheduler task that is in the insatller will not start it.

Shared Memory should work when HWiNFO is started as Admin but the application consuming the Shared Memory data from HWiNFO might also need Admin privileges to access it.
