Application requires 'Privilege level' Run this program as administrator

09/09/2013 4702 views

Hi I've recently been given the task to make an application work inside our locked down windows 7 x64 enviroment.

I tried repackaging the application with admin Studio 11.5 and elevating the required registries, and file structure for the app to work.

Unfortunatly evertime i run it, i get given a prompt (the application requires administrative rights to run). I have allowed all Authenticated users to the file structure and registry of the app. The one thing i have noticed is that the vendor files are not signed. I tried running a shim on the application without any luck.

Speaking to the vendor he tells me that the app needs to run with the box ticked 'Run this program as ad aministrator' under the compatability options of the exe.

I'm wondering what else i could try to get this app working, as having that option ticked would not be a solution i could roll out in a corporate enviroment.

Figured it out, the application executable writes a registry key under HKLM that doesn't get picked up during the package recapture. 

Imported the key, problem solved :)
