Can UAC be disabled on an individual user account in Windows Server 2012R2? RRS feed

  • Question

  • According to Microsoft, to deactivate UAC on 2012R2 you can modify the registry, but this deactivates UAC for all user accounts on the server.

    Is it possible to deactivate UAC for an individual local user account?

    Thanks in advance.

    The Task Scheduler Trick

    If you’re having issues with any of the tools that use the Task Scheduler shortcut to elevate the application, or would simply like to know how it’s done, you can always create a scheduled task yourself. It’s not difficult and only takes a minute or two to setup. Here are the steps on how to make a program run under the Task Scheduler with the highest privileges to bypass the UAC prompt.

    1. Click the Start button and type Task Scheduler on the search programs and files bar and hit enter. Or go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Task Scheduler.

    2. Click Action from the menu and select Create Task. Fill in the Name and Description boxes and then MAKE SURE to check the “Run with highest privileges” check box. This is the option which elevates the task to bypass the UAC prompt.

    3. Go to the Actions tab and click the New button.

    4. Make sure that “Start a program” option is selected and browse for the program that you want to run without a UAC prompt and click OK. Optionally you can also specify any command line arguments if required.

    5. Now go to Settings tab and make sure that “Allow task to be run on demand” is selected which should already be enabled. Click the OK button to create the task and you should see the task being added to the Task Scheduler Library.

    6. You can either manually run the program directly from Task Scheduler by right clicking on the task and select Run, or create a shortcut which is very useful when you want to put it in startup or just double click to open it quickly. To create a shortcut, right click on the Desktop and select New -> Shortcut. Type the following into the location box and click Next.

    schtasks /run /TN "{Name of task}"

    You will obviously need to change the task name in double quotes to the name of the task which you’ve used in step 2. Any name can be used for the shortcut and then click the Finish button. Whenever you need to run the program without the annoying UAC prompt, simply run the shortcut which has been created. You can even be place the shortcut in the Startup folder so that it runs with highest privileges without prompting you to allow the following program to make changes to the computer.

    If you totally disable User Account Control, then you don’t need to use these methods, but it is good to know that there is a way to bypass the UAC restriction using different ways if needed. If you have UAC enabled and would like to keep it that way, or would like to allow another user access to a safe file without needing a prompt, then these tips could be useful if you need to run certain programs that require elevation when they startup

  • As far as I know, UAC settings affect all users on machine. You can set different UAC policy for admins and standard users, but there is no way to turn off UAC of a specific user account only.
