Disable "permissions" in rtm...???

    Thanks for all the input Shawn. I tried the elevated commands suggested in the links above, but it still asked for permission. So I decided to edit the registry and set the EnableLUA key value to zero following the instructions on post #1 here, and that fixed it. If and when I need to use apps will reset it to 1. Is there a regedit download to set this key value to zero, and back to one? Or could I do it by exporting and saving the respective keys with 0 and 1 values?

    Forgot to mention I'm using the hack Ex7ForW8 to restore the W7 Orb Start Menu, which requires the W7 installation disc to be put into optical drive during installation, and it captures files from W7. In effect it means you're using Explorer 7 on the desktop and "Metro" start screen is not available in this mode. You can use a toggle switch to return to Explorer 8 and "Metro". However, I will probably never, or very seldom use original W8 start screen.

    Cheers and thanks for all your help. I'm a happy camper now.

    Mustang,

    Odd. The one I posted here sets EnableLUA to 0. Not sure why it wouldn't work when it does the same.

    Exporting the registry key would be the easiest way to toggle it back and forth if you like. The tutorial above with the REG files for Windows 7 can do this for you as well.

    I don't really understand it, but I tried that link which goes to Windows7Forums, and used the options you suggested. I noticed those regedits did change the slide controller on UAC in: Control Panel > Action Center > Change UAC Settings. But I never checked the registry, I just tried it out in practice to make name changes and kept getting the warnings. But when I manually changed the value in registry it worked.

    UPDATE: Apologies Shawn, my bad. I never read the very last few steps where it said the PC had to be rebooted to apply the registry changes. Did that and it worked fine.

    Many thanks for your patience and help.

    Did you restart after merging the REG file?

    Odd, but as long as you got it working.

    Don't know if you saw my update in my last post above yours? The problem was I didn't reboot after doing the regedit from your download. Missed reading the last two steps of your tutorial and just ran the downloaded regedit files. So Oooooopps! All my fault! Tutorial works fine. Apologies!

    As a point of interest, UAC control ran seamless in W7 Ult Retail. I kept it set to zero permanently, and it never had a problem and no need to adjust registry key. Not so in W8 in Pro OEM version. Maybe will be fixed in MS update, or maybe deliberately set so can't totally switch off to keep apps active?

    Cheers M
