Sysinternals Debugview - is there a way to automatically run for non-admins?

We are having some problems with one of our applications randomly crashing.  The software company that develops this application has asked us to run Systinternals Debugview so that they can study the logs.

We use Windows 7 and our end-users are not administrators on their PC.

However, although I have managed to take advantage of Debugview's various switches to automatically launch the application as far as I can tell they need to be a local administrator for the application to run as the session needs to access the system32 folder.

I realise its possible for me to manually "run as administrator" but I don't really want to be doing this several times a day for several users (the users move around and log off/on several times a day).

Is there anyway to force this application to run for the end users without making them administrators?

DbgView should not need admin privs if you disable kernel capture (/kn) and global Win32 capture (/gn).
Didn't try, but you could also run dbgview with a different account as Scheduled Task, triggered by login, if nothing else helps (e.g. because you need the global Win32 capture feature).

Scheduled task running as administrator - thats a good idea.

I will experiment with that idea.  Thanks

Hi,

Thanks for your help.  Running this using scheduled tasks with logon as the trigger has worked nicely.

Much appreciated.
