Win 10 Pro EMET 5.5 GUI will not open for non admin user RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have deployed EMET to my test computer running Win 10 Pro. Though I see EMET in the notification area if I try to open the GUI and enter Admin creds nothing happens. I would like to get this working to help protect my environment. What am I missing?

  • I had this same issue, and found it to be resolved in EMET 5.51.

    MS KB2458544 (can't post links yet)

    There is also a workaround in that KB for older versions - it's apparently caused by a missing registry key from HKCU of the Admin user.

  • I have EMET 5.5 deployed in my environment as well but we have a windows 7  32/64 bit shop. I'm having the same exact issue described by Jonathan. When assisting a standard user who is experiencing issues with EMET  I click on the EMET GUI in the tray area so that I can access the settings. The UAC opens to enter my admin credentials and I do this but the UAC disappears and nothing happens. This has the same results after trying to open EMET through the program files. If I however uninstall EMET....and I try to configure a program ...the UAC pops up ...I enter my credentials and I am able to configure settings. 

    If I log on to the machine with my admin credentials I can access the EMET GUI no problem.

    Where does EMET and the UAC talk with one another. How do you configure settings for the UAC within EMET.
