  1. How can I provide admin rights to a single application?


    We have a small AD domain with about 21 users. On three computers, the users have a software product that is CONSTANTLY being updated and requires us (admins) to remote in and update the software. The application itself does not do anything to the OS...it's primarily for the interface to their web based app services system. Anyway, the are constantly (at least every 2 weeks) telling users they need to update. To do that, we remote in, launch the app with admin privileges, click OK when prompted for the update, let the app update, then close the app and let the user have the machine back, again.


    I'd like to be able to let the users run this particular application with admin privileges. A LONG time ago there was an app set called Beyond Trust that would allow this to happen, but they're gone.


    Does Microsoft have a solution (Windows 10 clients to Windows Server 2008 or higher) for this? I just want to grant 3 users the rights to run this app as an admin so they can do updates themselves.

    :)

    admin rights keep disappearing!?!!

    Hi guys,

    I am actually having a problem at work that our IT department hasn't been able to figure out. I am supposed to be a member of the admin group. We are on a domain. The problem is that everytime I reboot the computer I loose my admin rights(no longer in the administrator group) and just become a normal user again. I have tried googling this and didn't get to many results.
    I believe IT is just giving me local admin rights, not admin rights for the whole domain.

    Any suggestions?

    EDIT: It is on Windows XP Pro.

  3. Windows 10 Admin rights?

    I am becoming increasingly frustrated with windows 10, for some unexplained reason the photos app stopped working, the suggestion is to uninstall and reinstall this app, however the system reports that I do not have admin rights to perform this operation!

    I wonder who does, I log into windows as an administrator and could do anything, this is a new problem since upgrading to windows 10 on my single user personal laptop.

    I did find a community post showing the following instructions:

    I request you to follow the below steps and disable in built admin account on the computer.



    • Open Command Prompt in Admin mode.
    • Copy and paste the below command and press Enter.
    net user administrator /active:no

    3.Close the elevated command prompt.

    4.The built-in Administrator will now be available to select to sign into.

    However all I get for my trouble is access denied error 5

    So where do we go from here?

    I am 66 already and cannot wait forever to sort this please help How can I provide admin rights to a single application? ;)
