Elevation Prompt - Exception List RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to exclude certain applications from displaying the elevation prompt (based on a hash, crc, etc)?


    There are certain applications that I use quite a bit and it would be helpful if I could disable the prompt on these particular apps without disabling UAC altogether...

  • Hi,


    I am sorry to say that we cannot set UAC to exclude a specific *.exe file. This is designed for security considerations because the DLL files loaded by the *.exe in the future may cause potential problems.


    At this time, we may use the following workaround:


    1.    Click Start->All Programs->Accessories.

    2.    Right click Command Prompt and choose "Run As Administrator".

    3.    Run the application in that window. (Note: Please only run the applications that you trust.)


    I hope this helps.
