Archived from groups: microsoft>public>windows>vista>security (more info?)

Hello,
I have an issue with a new domain setup. New Server 2003 R2 AD server,
basic install, default settings. Two new Vista Business Ed boxes. We have
an application that needs the Privilege Level Run as Administrator checked
(according to the application developer it runs with the box checkec), but no
matter what user I log in as, Domain Admin, Local Admin, etc.. the box is
always Greyed Out. I went through the local system policy looking for an
option to allow the ability to check the box but couldn't find anything.
Any thoughts?
Thanks for you help in advance,
Jeremey

Hello,

Are you accessing the properties of a shortcut?

If so, you need to click the advanced... button under the shortcut tab.

Hi Jimmy,
That didn't seem to work. It is a shortcut. Why would the Run as
Administrator check box be greyed out in the Compatibility tab. On this
machine it is that way for all Short Cuts no matter which login I use.
Thanks again,
Jeremey

These are grayed out if the app has an internal manifest that declares its
run level.

I'm not sure why it works this way.

If you are accessing the properties of an EXE, then you use the
compatability tab to set the program to always ask for your permission when
it starts.

If you are accessing the properties of a shortcut, then you click the
"advanced..." button on the shortcut tab, and there is a checkbox there "Run
as administrator" that you use to make the shortcut to always ask for your
permission when you double-click on it.

You have to do it differently for shortcuts vs. exe's.

Hi Phil,
So according to the developer they do not see this issue in their
environment. Is there anything in local permission or an AD GPU that might
change this?
Thanks,
