App-V 5.0 Package: Run as Administrator RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody

    Is there a way to start an App-V 5.0 package as an administrator?

    We have applications, where we need to start them normally and start them as an administrator (Right click > Run as Administrator).

    We can choose this menu, but if we run a package with administrator, there will nothing appear (no application, no messages).

    Do anyone of you know a reason for that?

    Thanks in advance.

    The other users were in the correct group, but they didn't get the right policy. We corrected it and now we can use Run As.

    Thank you for your tips.

  • Run as Administrator works for me on an App-V 5 package. Have you confirmed that the issue isn't with the application?

    Are you running as administrator with the same user account or elevating with a separate account? If it's a separate account, then it's likely that the package must be published globally or to all users

  • When I run as administrator, I start the package with another, separate account - not with the same user.

    What do you mean with that the package must be published to globally/all user's?
    Both user's are in the same application group, which allows to run the package.

    Thanks for your answer(s).

  • Hello,

    Has the other user performed a publishing refresh?
