    Updated to 1511: "740: The requested operation requires elevation"


    In my normal user account (belonging to Users group) I maintain a folder with a bunch of convenient administrative shortcuts, which run certain applications under "Administrator" account through 'runas' utility. Each shortcut's command line looks as

    Code:
    Code:
    C:\Windows\System32\runas.exe /user:Administrator /savecred "<command line>"
    Before update to version 1511 all my shortcuts were working fine. After the update most of them suddenly stopped working. Namely, running mmc shortcuts, like

    Code:
    Code:
    C:\Windows\System32\runas.exe /user:Administrator /savecred "mmc compmgmt.msc"
    produces error "740: The requested operation requires elevation".

    Control panel shortcuts like

    Code:
    Code:
    C:\Windows\System32\runas.exe /user:Administrator /savecred "control appwiz.cpl"
    generate a message box

    Code:
    Code:
    ::{26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064C98683}\0\::{7B81BE6A-CE2B-4676-A29E-EB907A5126C5} Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.
    Some applications continue to work, some don't. SysInternal's Autoruns works fine. Far Manager doesn't suffer from it either. But CPU-Z shortcut

    Code:
    Code:
    C:\Windows\System32\runas.exe /user:Administrator /savecred "C:\Utils\CPU-Z\cpuz_x64.exe"
    also fails with "740: The requested operation requires elevation".

    Is the something I can change (policy etc.) to restore the pre-1511 behavior?
