or is there a way to turn on UAC warnings for the built in Administrator without having prompts for std. user acc using the shortcut with admin privil. ?
Resumee: I want to use only ONE admin account which I use with UAC on and have shortcuts (with the privl. of this admin) for std. user acc. without prompts

or maybe this is what Ive been looking for :
3. To Have UAC Prompt Administrators for a Continue or Yes


but I expect a standard account using a shortcut with this elevated admin account will get the prompt as well
If you elevate your normal admin account, you will no longer get a UAC prompt just like the built-in Administrators.

The standard user will not get prompted by UAC when using the elevated shortcut since the shortcut uses the credentials of the elevated admin account instead of the standard user's.

No. The key to this is an "elevated" administrator account so that the standard user will not be prompted by UAC using that account's credentials.

As a workaround, try elevating your normal admin account first to create the shortcut using your account's password instead of the built-in Admin to see if it'll work for the standard user or not.

If not, then you will be stuck having to use the built-in Administrator as per the tutorial instead of the workaround.

I am logged into my normal admin account:
when I start the "runas shortcut" using my normal admin (in the runas) with elevated rights, I get the message "you are not allowed to write to the registry" which i also get when I start my program without saying "start as Administrator"

5ggggg,

Did you create a separate shortcut in Windows 7, and not use the same one from Windows 8?

Is able to work in Windows 7 if you use the built-in Administrator in it?

the prog runs in W7 if started an Admin

I took the w8 shortcut and changed the PC Name...and it didnt work ... so I tried the code
Code:
C:\Windows\System32\runas.exe /user:xxx\zadm /savecred "D:\sources\...exe"
in an Administrator CMD ... and there I could see the error from above

It won't work if you just copied it over from Windows 8. Even if you modified it.

You have to start completely from scratch in Windows 7 using the built-in Administrator account from Windows 7. Since you already tried it, you will need to use a new name for the shortcut as well.
