22. Run As Administrator
On occasion you may come across an application
that, when you come to launch it, refuses to launch
due to insufficient user permissions. For example,
if you try to launch the boot configuration
application, BCDedit, from the Command Window you
may get the following message 'The boot
configuration data store could not be opened. Access
When this happens it usually indicates that
Windows requires your permission to launch the
application. in this situation it is advisable to
use the Run as Administrator option.
By using the Run as Administrator option you can
allow this application to run once without the need
for full administrator privileges.
1/ Locate the applications icon
or short cut and Right
click on it.
2/ From the Drop Down Menu
select the Run As Administrator
3/ Now click the application icon or short cut
and it should run.
4/ When the User Account Control
(UAC) message appears enter the appropriate
credentials if you are logged on as a standard user,
and click the Submit button.
5/ If you are the Administrator
and UAC is not configured to always
require credentials, just Click the Continue
button and the application should start.
