UAC "issue" with Win 8.1

Recommended Posts

anybastard

Hi guys ,

I need your help for a stupid issue , but I'm not able to solve

Basically I need to change some registry value and with RegWrite command all works fine .

My problem is related to UAC pop-up  , because I'm not able to skip it and run my script with admin privileges  ( also using #RequireAdmin )

BTW , for different reasons I cannot disable UAC

 

Do you have any idea or workaround for me ?

Thanks a lot

Should be able to modify reg without an issue on windows 8. Example: (Unrelated to yours)

RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main", "Start Page", "REG_SZ", "http://msn.com")

It changes your homepage to http://msn.com when you open your internet explorer.

and you do not need to use #requireadmin for this as long as you log on as the local admin.

do you need the #requireadmin to run your script anyways? If so, I don't think you can skip it.

Additional suggestion, but not recommend is to turn off UAC completely.

Have a look the _UAC_SetConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin in my >UAC UDF that reb mentioned.  

#RequireAdmin
#include <UAC.au3>

_UAC_SetConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin($UAC_ELEVATE_WITHOUT_PROMPTING)

This turns off the UAC prompts for admins, but leaves it for regular users.
