Can't see Tacview in DCS Beta unless I am admin
« on: June 11, 2018, 01:30:51 AM »
I guess the subject says it all but here is some more detail.

I am running the latest DCS beta (as of 6/10/18) and I can only see Tacview (v1.7.1) if I run DCS as an admin. It doesn't show up anywhere (Special or icons at the bottom of the main screen) if I run it as a regular user. Is there a way to make it so that I can see/use it when I don't run DCS  as admin?

Hello Dan,

Yes, this is a known limitation of the current installer: Tacview DCS Exporter is visible only for the administrator account which has installed it. I have planned to fix this, but this will be for a later update.

Meanwhile, you can manually install Tacview data exporter for DCS by copying the files and subfolders of

C:\Program Files (x86)\Tacview\DCS\

In the DCS folder of your non admin user which should look like:


Then, you should see Tacview exporter options in DCS World -> Settings -> Special
