Windows 7 Pro - Full Control/Permissions for an app
Posted on 2010-11-08
I have a new Windows 7 Pro (Acer VX275) that we just set up here at the shop. We want the user as a Standard User with name HA017. We installed our routine application called AB.exe. The company that produces AB says they support Win 7. When launched from the desktop shortcut, Win 7 puts up a prompt for the Admin password. We can't get rid of that password prompt behavior. Here's what we've tried thus far.
On the admin account, we went to the folder (c:\Program Files\AB) and granted HA017 full control over the folder. No luck.
We went to the admin account and found the application - AB.exe - and set the User HA017 with full control. No luck.
We established the user HA017 as an admin and uninstalled and reinstalled - runs the app fine but with the admin privs. However, reverted to a standard user - no luck.
Back to the admin acct and regranted full control to HA017 (read, write, etc). Logged on as HA017 - standard user - no luck.
Set HA017 as admin - and set up the "Take Ownership" context menu applet. Right click, Take Ownership - it runs. Reverted to standard user. No luck.
I'm obviously missing something here? Can someone point me in the right direction?
