  • Question

  • Hi All,


    Consider the scenario on windows XP operating system:

    When I install the software as an administrator using the installer, the installer installs the software. This software is used to enumerate the processes and open them on the machine in restricted user with run as admin it works fine.

    When the restricted user uses installer to install the software using the user name and password of administrator, the installer run as administrator and installs the software.

    When the restricted user uses the installed software to enumerate the processes and open them, the software is unable to enumerate the processes even if it is run as admin.

    So, my question is why the software fails to open the processes in case of restricted user even if we are running it as admin?

    Please tell me the reason of failure.

    Thanks & Regards

  • Hi Amrapali,

    in order to help it would be beneficial if you could be more precise about what software fails to execute and what the symptoms of this failure are, e.g. error codes, error message, etc.

    Best regards,
    Alex
