If you're running into an authentication error when starting up Social Booth, do the following:

  • Right click on Social Booth
  • Click on properties
  • Click on the "compatibility" tab
  • Click "run as administrator"
  • Press apply then press ok
  • Run Social Booth
  • If prompted with another pop up, click on "change when these settings appears"
  • On the left hand side, move the tab to the bottom to "never"
  • Press ok, and then press "yes"
  • Run Social Booth - there should no longer be an authentication error message

Also, ensure your firewall and anti-viruses aren't running.
