I have a new user in my environment, and I ran a fresh copy of Windows 7 pro. When setting up the hidden admin account, I did NOT create a password, and realized that
I probably should have. After trying to install some software on the user's account and not being allowed to enter
admin credentials even with shift + right click, I decided to try to activate the hidden admin account and go from there. I activated the admin account, and assigned a password, but I'm still getting the message
that I need admin privileges to install anything, even while on the admin account.
When I shift+right click, there isn't even an option to run as administrator, only
"run as different user". When I try to run as different user and type in admin credentials, it says invalid file path. I've done this 100 times, I have no idea where I went wrong this time.
