  • Hi,

    May I know the Operating system which you are using ,The  below procedure applies to Operating systems above Windows Vista .

    To reset the password on your Windows 2012 server, simply complete the following steps:

    • Boot from the Micrsoft Windows Server 2012 DVD
    • From the Windows Setup menu, click “Next”.
    • Select “Repair your computer”
    • Under Choose and option, click on “Troubleshoot”.
    • Under Advanced options, click “Command Prompt”.
    • At the command prompt, run the following commands: d: cd windows\system32 ren Utilman.exe Utilman.exe.old copy cmd.exe Utilman.exe
    • Close the command prompt and then click “Continue”.
    • The server should now boot and present the logon screen. Here click Windows Key + U.
    • At the prompt you can now change the password, by typing the following command: net user administrator Password123 This will set the password for the Administrator user to be Password123 (case sensitive).

    After doing this login with Administrator credentials and Change the UAC (User Account Control) To Low so that it will not prompt.

  • Hi herkia.

    You need to use an administrative account to install a software: that's why the Windows User Account Control feature is prompting you for administrative credentials.
    Whenever a setup program is being executed, Windows asks for administrative credentials to allow the setup program to perform changes on the system.
