Okay, I used to remember how to do this, I am trying to install video drivers for Vista CTP Build 5231...only I can't because the computer says I don't have the correct privlages. It shows my account as administrator however. Do I need to disable UAC or how can I run Device Manager as an administrator? Thanks for your help, I know I should remember know how to do this :-P


Edit: Ahh, nevermind. I think I figured it out :-)

Even when you're logged on with an admin account, earlier builds of Vista will not allow you to perform administrative actions (such as install hardware). The following steps should help others with this issue.

Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Locate DWORD EnableLUA and change it's value to 0.

Purpose: This is how you disable UAP (called UAC in later builds.)




ConsentPromptBehavior (within the same registry path), changing value to 0 eliminates the"Are you sure your want to complete this action" prompt. (Build 5270 and later have two keys: ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin and ConsentPromptBehaviorUser.



EnableInstallerDetection (within the same registry path), changing the value to 0 This option will disable the automatic detection of installation packages that require elevation to install.


Hope this helps somebody trying to perfrom admin-specific actions in early version of Vista.
