As a new KACE user I am running in to a bit of a problem writing software deployments and doing scripting where I run in to the roadblock which is UAC. I am testing these on 3 machines and it will run on XP, Win7 (w/o UAC), but then fail on the Win7 machine with UAC.

Is there any way to elevate the Agent to allow it to execute things as admin. Or should we just disable UAC completely?

The agent runs as SYSTEM, which should bypass UAC for all software distributions. Scripting allows the use of other credentials, but I haven't attempted running as a specified user with UAC enabled.

0 runs as local SYSTEM which are not subject to the UAC and Scripts can run under different credential but as far as turning off UAC, that is a business decision that has to be made internally as it deals with the security level of your systems.
