Vista UAC RRS feed

  • Question


    I would like to deploy the command Net User administrator <password> using SMS 2003.  This needs elevated privileges within Vista so it gives me an error.  Any ideas?

  • Hi Jason_SC,


    Please change the policy setting User Account Control: Detect application installations and prompt for elevation to “disable” in Windows Vista to check the result. Here is the detailed steps:


    1.    Create and edit a GPO, locate to Windows settings\Security settings\Local policies\Security Options, and change the policy setting to disable.

    2.    On Windows Vista machine, run gpupdate.exe to apply the policy. And then, run rsop.msc to make sure the policy has been applied successfully.

    3.    Deploy the command again and check the result.


    You may need to restart the machine after the new policy setting is applied.


    Hope it helps.
