UAC problem: how to run application as domain user RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    On Windows 7 (domain member) logged as administrator I can run the application without UAC prompt.

    When logged as domain user, UAC always prompt for admin password.

    Even the shortcut is different: has the yellow-blue shield:

    I do not want do disable UAC completely. I just want to permit to launch this application by non administrator user.

    Can enybody help?

  • Hi,

    Why not add this domain user to Administrators Group?

    Type lusrmgr.msc in Run, double-click Administrators groups in Groups unit, then add this domain user.

    Also, you can create an Elevated Program Shortcut for this application, which still need administator credential for the first time.

    1. bad idea for security reasons.

    2. users do not know administrator password (for security reasons).

    I used the "Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit" to achieve my goal.

    No. It forces credential rise and always prompt for admin password.
