Acronis True Image Home 11, Vista Home Premium, User Account Control (UAC) is enabled I logged in as Administrator to setup the laptop for my friend. When I am done, he will login as a Standard user, so he has less power to damage or infect the laptop. Whenever the Standard user tries to launch ATI, either via the executable or by batch file to the Tasks, User Account Control prompts for the Administrator password before launching. That's okay, because I don't need the Standard user to be able to access the full ATI application. However, the Standard user needs to be able to run the pre-created Tasks, and I can't figure out how to enable him to do this without the administrator password. In ATI I created a Task, set to run Manually, that creates a Full Backup. I also created a batch file to directly launch the Task (ATI script), The Standard user will run the batch file to launch the Task. The problem is that the Standard user is unable to launch the ATI Task, because User Account Control (UAC) prompts to require the administrator password. Just in case someone suggests disabling UAC, that would be a bad idea. UAC is valuable protection that should not be disabled. I used TweakUAC to enable the Administrator account to switch UAC to "quiet mode", which means that UAC remains enabled but the Administrator profile won’t see the elevation prompts. Standard user profiles will have full UAC protection enabled with elevation prompts. I explained further in https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showp...55&postcount=9 My situation seems like a common situation that Acronis development would have considered: an Administrator configures the Vista system, and creates ATI Tasks, but the Standard user needs to be able to run the ATI Tasks. How can I set the ATI Tasks to run with administrator permissions, or run without requiring password? If that isn't possible to set that permission for Tasks alone, is it possible to configure ATI to run with administrator permissions, or run without requiring password when run by a Standard user? .
