MikroElektronika Easypic v7 board software needs 'Run as administrator' on Windows 8.1 x64

09/25/2015 1480 views
Anyone using MikroElektronika Easypic v7 board software in a network environment under limited user on Windows 8.1 x64? Runs fine in the same setup on a 32 bit machine on the domain under limited user but changing to 64 bit seems to need to be run as 'Run as Administrator' before picking up the board in the software. Is there a command I can run to specifically start the one program with the admin account and password piped in. The Runas command does't seem to working anymore for me and I think I read something saying Microsoft deemed it a security risk now and had remove it / dealt with it. Any suggestions? Is there a file or folder needing extra security?

are you sure it "really" needs admin permissions? Perhaps it is just the generic recognition from the OS that it is presuming that admin permissions are required. You have two options...

1. Create a manifest file that has "asInovoker" so that the OS assumes that it is written for Vista or higher
2. Create a shim using the ACT that has the "asInvoker"

If the two above proposals don't give the required result, have you had a look using Procmon to see if it is getting any access denied results? There you could see if you need to relax permission of any files or folders.

On your test system, run a capture of the application when you "run as administrator" as I suspect there is something that the app is writing to a restricted area when it picks up the board.  Have you checked the vendor readme file(s) or any deployment instructions as this may also hold an answer.
