  • Running program in compatibility mode + run as administrator

    I'm looking for a way to run AutoCad 2005 on Windows 7. However, you must run it in XP mode with elevated privileges.

    I do not want to have to give the end user local administrator privileges.

    I have tried the runas /savecred switch with no luck. However, I found a workaround using Task Scheduler - however the user does not have permissions to the task. How would I give them permissions to execute the task?

    (Been a long time since I've done desktop support, so I apologize if this may be right in front of my face! )

    I think what you're looking for is modifying the permissions on the Windows\Tasks folder as well as the tasks within that folder. Grant the users the proper permissions for them to run tasks (execute permissions I think - you might want to turn on access auditing on the folder and see what's being allowed and denied just to make sure). So in other words, you've got to cacl your acls. An odd coincidence after our brief conversation this afternoon.

      That was the ticket! Total mind blank, been awhile since I've done this stuff!

        You need to go into programmes>autocad folder> and look for exe file and allow permisson only for modify to exe first and try it if not give it ful on folder.
