How to solve "User Account Control" ?

    Question

  • Hello.

    I installed "Turbo VPN" and when I want to open it the it asking me administrator username and password. Something like it.

    I don't like to add the user in "Administrator" group. Any idea?

    Thank you.

  • Hi Windows.Geek.

    You could either change user account control settings (read the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 975787) or check the option to run the program as administrator (i.e.: having elevated privileges without adding the account to the Administrators group) in the Compatibility tab of the program's executable file properties.

    Bye.

  • Thank you but not worked. I guess the user must add to admin group because "VPN" want to make a Virtual NIC !!!!

  • Hi,

    Sorry to reply to you late. There is a way that you can allow a standard user run an application as administrator.

    Here are some steps:

    1.Make sure the administrator account is enabled.

    2.Right click the desktop to create a shortcut.

    3.Enter the command:

    runas /user:ComputerName\Administrator /savecred “C:\Path\To\Program.exe“

    Example:

    runas /user:Laptop\Administrator /savecred “C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe”

    4.Customize the shortcut.

    5.The first time you double-click your shortcut, you’ll be prompted to enter the Administrator account’s password. This password will be saved – the next time you double-click the shortcut, the application will launch as Administrator without asking you for a password.

    Good luck.

    Vivian
