Cisco Clean Access Agent and Vista/UAC

Unanswered Question
Jul 9th, 2008

Anyone have any idea on how to allow the agent to start w/o kicking off UAC for a non-admin user? Hate the thought of having to disable security (UAC) to further security (enforce software policies). Thanks in advance.

Just to follow up (on my own post ;-)):

"What you are seeing is unfortunately expected behavior. With we ask for the highest available privileges. As an admin this produces a UAC prompt to give all privileges. There has been an enhancement bug filed to change the behavior in future versions."

reread this and it was certainly not clear. clean access agent does not fire uac for regular users. it does, however, fire a uac dialog for users with administrative privileges even though it doesn't need them. Opposite of what you'd think and what I wrote above.

We were able to get rid of Vista UAC promot for local admin users without disabling UAC by using manifest. This is not issue on non-admin users.
