Adinistrator privileges exist but are not recognized
Posted on 2009-04-01
I normally log into my Windows laptop with a user name that belongs to the administrators group. The login also requires the specification of a domain. I am however never physically connected to this domain. The only time I connect to the domain is for the purposes of changing my Windows password.
I have one specific executable that I am unable to launch with this login because a pop-up is generated indicating that I must have administrator privileges. As stated previously the login in question belongs to the administrators group. Furthermore I am able to carry all administrative activities on this computer including such things as installing new programs, stopping and starting services etc.
If I login to the same local machine as administrator, without specifying a domain, then I am able to launch the executable. Ideally, I would like to be able to launch this executable from the account that requires the specification of the domain. I have yet to find something that is different with this account that would explain the symptoms that I am running into. Any assistance you are able to provide in resolving this issue is much appreciated.
