Cannot Run Fix it Center on 2008 R2 (Domain Controller) RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try to start Fix it Center for the first time I get "You must be an Administrator to run Fix it Center for the first time.  Please log on  as an Administrator to complete Fix it Center configuration.".

    I am logged in as a domain administrator, and I also tried the 'run as administrator' option with the same result. 

    Just as a note, UAC is disabled.

    Windows 2008 R2 (Standard Edition) x64.

  • Dear Fix it Center (Beta) Customer,

    Thank you for your feedbacks.

    The failure you encountered during setup using a domain administrator account is a known issue in our bug database. As a first beta release, the target audience of the application is home consumers. We will consider correcting the problem in future releases. As a workaround, you may add your domain administrator account directly as a member of the local Administartors group on the computer and re-attempt the Fix it Center (Beta) setup.

    Thanks again for your patronage and feedbacks!

     

    Best regards,

  • Hi,

    Fix it Center requires to run in elevated mode, and thus UAC needs to be enabled before it can be run.

    Regards,

  • Fair enough. 

     

    Seems broken to me though.    If I have UAC off, and I'm an Administrator it should be elevated.

  • i'm curious what check was being performed.

    Were they not using the IsUserAnAdmin() api call?
