Pushing software to Windows 8.1 with UAC enabled

Rencently in our environment we have decided to use some Microsoft Surface Pro 2 and some machines will have Windows 8.1 (small group).  To allow for metro apps to be used UAC needs to be enabled.  In the past we have asked about UAC not allowing software push from Kace.  The KACE agent will still check in and show connected.

I wanted to see if anyone has had any success being able to deploy software to Windows 8.1 machines with UAC turned on using K1000?

So after trying the GPO that was suggested we were able to install the software.

I also found a simple fix that went over my head.  I failed to let the Kbox deploy to Windows 8 and 8.1.  If it was a snake it would have bit me.

Thanks for the help Austin.

Not sure if these same options would be available or Win 8.1 but for our Windows 7 machines, we have the following GPOs defined:

UAC: Behavior of elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode = Elevate w/o Prompt
UAC: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode = Enabled
