File Synchronization and UAC on Windows 7 / Windows 8
I suspect this question will apply to more than just File Synchronization, but the same concept will apply all across.
Up until I started playing with Windows 8, I've always had UAC turned off in my organization, and controlled security via other means. (GPO, Firewall, etc...) , so KACE deployments were not an issue.
However, with the upcoming Windows 8, in case you don't know, Microsoft made it so that none of the Live Tiles (or Metro Apps) function without UAC being at least set at the minimum level. With that, I decided to try to cope with that, and make things work around UAC. However, File Synchronization seems to completely fail with an "Access Denied" message when trying to copy something to, say, C:\Users\Public\Desktop.
Even when I try to perform the copy manually, from C:\ProgramData\Dell\Kace\Downloads\####\File.exe to C:\Users\Public\Desktop, the same "Access Denied" error appears. When running the same with an elevated Command Prompt, the copy works. If I turn off UAC, I suspect the KACE copy job will work. however, I'm thinking, that with Windows 8 on the horizon, and if some companies want to keep functionality to Metro apps available, they will undoubtedly have to keep UAC turned on, thereby crippling a lot of KACE's functions.
Am I missing something here? Can KACE handle UAC in such situations? and if so, how do I do that?
At this point, I'm attempting a very simple File Synchronization which takes a file associated with a software item, and places it on the C:\Users\Public\Desktop
