Windows 7 User Account Control Workaround RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to enable this setting if user account control is turned off:

    User Account Control: Virtualize file and registry write failures to per-user locations

    I am finding if UAC is disabled, the above option is also disabled which can cause several applications to not work properly as file and registry writes will fail. So I am wondering if there is a way to have this setting enabled while UAC is completely off.

  • Hi,


    The setting is based on User Account Control, if User Account Control is disabled, the related settings would be disabled as well.


    Hope it helps.
