Try Process Monitor (ProcMon) from Microsoft (was formerly SysInternals) and see if that points out where the issue lies - suspect that it's going to be file/folder or registry write access.


Another tool to try is LUA Buglight - http://blogs.msdn.com/b/aaron_margosis/archive/2012/11/28/lua-buglight-2-2-with-support-for-windows-8.aspx

This allows you to run the application as a standard user, but when it fails - as your application does- it switches to admin credentials (that you've supplied) to complete the action and then reports on the areas of the file system/registry that needed the elevated permission -  you can then incorporate into your package the relevant permissions required.

There may also be a vendor support document detailing access permissions required for their application, especially as it's a SAP application.


Hope that helps,

  • BugLight sounds awesome Dunnpy, thanks for sharing! I've added a link here: http://www.itninja.com/link/lua-buglight
  • Hi Dunnpy,
    I am not able to capture anything from this tool. is any XML file missing from the tool. could you please explain how we can use this to capture the settings..

    Thanks in advance..
  • All of the details on how to use the tool are on the MSDN blog site, under the previous release versions - e.g. - http://blogs.msdn.com/b/aaron_margosis/archive/2009/11/03/luabuglight.aspx

    If you're not having any joy with LUA Buglight, what does ProcMon tell you about the issue? Is it flagging any 'access denied' type message for file system or registry?
