User Account Control file access issue
Posted: Wed Apr 06, 2016 1:34 pm
I have a vb script that copies files from other users on a PC. It is run as an administrator. The problem that I have is if UAC is turned on, I need the account of the admin that is moving the files to have previously accessed that users profile, otherwise the process will fail. For example clicking on profile folder and selecting continue to the UAC message to gain access. Once the admin account has clicked continue to be granted access to the users profile, then the file moves will work successfully. Does anyone have a good way to automate or work around this issue without logging in and accessing the users profile folder as the admin account? Thanks for any help that you may have.
