Allow some domain users access to command prompt Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good day,

    I have a windows 2003 Domain and some users were upgraded from Windows Xp to Windows 7 however now they cannot access the command prompt. Previously they could of run the command prompt in Xp.

    Is there a setting in windows 7 which would allow the users access to the command prompt without making a change or configuring a domain policy?

    The users are a select few within various departments and have Windows 7 Pro.

  • Can you elaborate on what you mean by "cannot access the command prompt". Do you get any error message? 

    If you are trying to perform something that requires administrative priviliges you must right click cmd.exe and choose "Run as Administrator".
