When I RDP to a workstation, to a Non-Admin User, when I need to install as an "Admin" - once I initiate the "RunAsAdmin" install, the screen goes black.  Only the local user is able to see the prompt.  I cant share my Admin login to the Non-Admin user.

Wait a second..  Why not just use a GPO/LGPO to deploy the software?  The other option is to use runas

HTH,

it's not always to install - to make modifications, access files, uninstall.
runas is not full proof.

Are you both running Windows 7?

Are you actually using RDC or Remote Assistance?

Remote Assistance cannot see UAC prompts, only the user can.

If you actually use RDC to connect the user's screen should go to a "Lock Screen" .. but you would see UAC prompts.

This is by design.

Remote Assistance cannot see UAC prompts, only the user can.
