Hello
Im using corporate edition 3.14, machines are Win10 1809. And single EXE migration. When I try to use that exe for users which have administrative rights - it works (even with UAC enabled).
But when user is not local admins group's member, when exe is started - we have to provide any administrative rights. Then migration fails and message in logs are "The specified <LocalAdmin> account domain\xxxxx does not have elevated permissions"

How to migrate machines without administrative rights for end user ???
Thanks !

The only workaround solution I got from support is :
- Change migration scope for ALL accounts (not Logged on only).
- Run this tool as LOCAL SYSTEM credentials - by remote connection action f.e. Psexec -s
or to use any central tool for software management (generally it should start all packages as SYSTEM)

We've decided to add all domain users into local administrators group ONLY for the migration time.

Seriously?

The whole point of User Account Control is that just because your are running as an Administrator does not mean that you have elevated administrator permissions. It is one of Microsoft's attempts to save you from yourself.

Here is a near twelve year-old post that explains how this works. Nothing has changed.

Given the widespread misunderstanding of UAC, we will be making changes to User Profile Wizard to make running as an Administrator more user-friendly, but we have our heads in our hands.
