How to grant regular user priviledges to change system time? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I've installed Windows SteadyState on user's computer (XP Pro, SP2) but sometimes user needs to change system time but doesn't have enough rights to do that. I granted user rights to change system time using ntrights.exe and access to notification area in SteadyState but still it's impossible to perform the operation.

    Am I doing anything wrong or there is no other way to change time but logon as admin?

  • Hi,

     

    That’s by design. User cannot change system time with Windows SteadyState installed. Only administrator can change system time.

     

    If you want the user change system time, you should turn off WDP, remove all restrictions of user, and remove the option “Lock profile to prevent the user from making permanent changes” in General Settings.

     

    Thank you for your understanding.
