Program needs Run as Administrator

Posted: 03-21-2008, 10:11 AM
I've got a program that will only work properly if I use "Run as
Administrator", despite being logged in as an administrator.

Is there a way I can fix this, so it runs normally?

PS, I know I shouldn't be running as administrator, but this is a PC that is
rarely connected to the Internet, and used for two or three specific tasks.

You can tell the program to always run as an administrator by doin
this

1. Right click on the program shortcu
2. Select propertie
3. Under the compatibility tab, click run this program as administrato
4. Click apply & o

That should take care of it

I hope this helps

Excellent, that's a good start.

Only problem now is that UAC asks if it is OK to run it. I would eventually
like this program to run on start up, and I think this may be a problem.

Thanks Bob, but the KB link is dead. I'm also not sure I want to install any
more programs on this PC, it is very task specific.

Your welcome. You might want to do this instead.

To disable UAC prompts NOT UAC:

Run Regedit and navigate to

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies\System]

Change the value of ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin from "2" to "0".

Would it make a difference if you did this to the program executable
rather than the shortcut? That way the program would always run as
admin, whether started from the shortcut or by double-clicking a file.
Or will Vista make both starting methods run it the same way?

You are running with administrator rights, but if you have to right click
and select Run as Administrator then you are not logged on as administrator.
When you first boot do you have two users listed to logon to?

Is your computer system ready for Vista?
