Granting User Permissions on Windows 10

Q: We can’t get UgCS to run in a Non-admin or Standard User account. Currently, under Windows 10 it asks for admin credentials. Please advise.

There are 2 methods to grant permissions in Windows 10:

First option: to grant permission for the folder containing UgCS

For folders:

  • C: \ Users \ USER_NAME \ AppData \ Local \ UGCS
  • C: \ Program Files (x86) \ UGCS \

do the following steps:

  1. Right-click on the UGCS folder.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Select the Security tab
  4. Click on "Advanced"
  5. Next to Owner click “Change”
  6. Type your username, click the "Check Names" button, then click OK.
  7. Check "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" under the owner's name.
  8. Click OK again. If you get a message saying "Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you full control?", Click "Yes" and you're done.
  9. Click the "Edit" button.
  10. Click on your username from the list.
  11. Check "Full control" underneath it.
  12. Click OK.
  13. Click OK again.
    Repeat with both folders.

Second option: Run the application as administrator):

  1. Create a cmd file, which includes the following:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\runas.exe /user:<Administrator_Name> /SAVECRED <Path_to_the_program>
  2. Save the file.
  3. Run the file to execute.
  4. Enter the administrator's data
  5. The program runs as an administrator.
    After you repeat the run the password prompt will not appear - it uses the parameter / SAVECRED To learn more about runas.exe: Follow the link
