Message

Failed to enable Hamachi network adapter
Failed to enable Hamachi network adapter.

Context

The issue stems from the fact that normal users do not have the "Load/Unload drivers" right in Windows. There are a couple solutions for this issue. Your options are:

Resolution

Option 1

Upgrade that computer to Hamachi Premium and run it as a system service.

Option 2

Log on as an administrator, start Hamachi, and in Preferences > System > Troubleshooting > uncheck the "Do not disable Hamachi network adapter" box.

MAKE SURE THE INDICATED OPTION IS CHECKED!!!

Notes

Options 2 will make the boot time longer, as the computer will try to resolve an IP to the adapter, but can't as Hamachi doesn't start until after logon.
