Test Complete not recording / Slow Playback
I am currently testing Testcomplete and am newbie to automation. When using the record function to record my software being installed, it records the first part of the installer (msi). But at the end of the 1st part of the installation a different wizard starts automatically(which cannot be changed), but the recording never picks up any clicks on these screens.
After doing some troubleshooting, I have found that in taskmanager the second part is launched as the user SYSTEM (built in). But if i launch it manually, it shows as myself and records, but if then used as part of the original script playback is at a snails pace(no delay lines have been used).
Is there a limitation in recording anything that is launched under the account of SYSTEM automatically, or am i doing something totally incorrectly.
Any help in trying to solve this would be welcomed, thanks in advance.

Please let me quote the "Testing Applications Running Under Another User Account" help topic:

TestComplete can record and simulate user actions over applications running under a different account. However, in order for TestComplete to be able to record user actions over this application, you have to add this application to the tested applications list and launch it in RunAs mode from TestComplete.
Also, you should run the tested application in this way when playing back scripts. Else, the simulation speed will be slow.

Currently, there is no way to overcome this restriction.
