User Account Control with packages pushed SCCM
Hi,I am running a package through SCCM on 64 bit systems that, when run from the source will ask the question "Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?" If I click yes, the program executes with no issues. Is there something I can do without making a blanket change to the user account control settings on the systems? When I run the app hidden its just sitting in the background till it SCCM times out monitoring.Any help would be awesome.Alison

Just so it's clear, I am running the package with the admin context. It's just asking me "am I sure?" every time on all of my Server 2008. On the file itself in the smspkgs$ folder, I tried checking under compatibility and privilege level, the box "run this program as an administrator". But its still asking.

This message doesn't actually have anything to do with UAC, it's a security mechanism that's been part of Windows for at least 5 years now. It also has nothing to do with your privilege level on a system. It has to do with running an unsigned executable from an untrusted location. For a good discussion of this check out http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7security/thread/bea30ad8-9ef8-4897-aab4-841a65f7af71/. One solution here is to check the unblock content as suggested in the above thread. Another is to set the program to download and execute instead of running straight from the DP or setting your trusted sites (or local intranet) zone to include the DP. (I'm not 100% sure about these two, so these may not work though).Jason | http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/jsandys | http://blogs.catapultsystems.com/jsandys/default.aspx | Twitter @JasonSandys

Adding the DP to the trusted sites did the trick. Thanks Jason.
