Add-Solution without UAC Deactivated RRS feed

Answers

  • As long as you start PowerShell using RunAs Administrator you should be able to use Add-Solution without a problem whether UAC is deactivated or not.  Are you starting PowerShell as Administrator and are you sure the logged in user is a Farm Admin?

  • Hi al2017,

    Agree with Paul and please try to run the command as administrator. With problem persist, try IIS Reset and run the command again.

    Thanks & Regards,
