Access Rights on Windows for UCC Clients

Answered Question
Feb 3rd, 2009

The UCC 1.4 client release notes contains the following:

 




CSCsg497l09



The Cisco UCC client does not work without administrator or power user rights on the PC.

The Popup application starts some Cisco UCC for Microsoft Office applications that run as services. These can only be started under administrative rights.

As a workaround, you can set these services to start with Microsoft Windows. You must also turn off the ucc.xml parameter for the auto-starting services.


The UCC 1.5 release notes contains:


Access Rights on Windows for UCC Clients


The UCC client requires admin or power user rights for installing the UCC Client software on a Windows computer. By default, admin or power user rights are also required for running the UCC client to allow the Windows services associated with the clients to be started and stopped.




Does anyone have more detail regarding running the UCC client on a PC without admin rights ?

The bug ID above (which should be CSCsg49709 I think) which mentions a workaround is not visible. Is there more specific detail about which services this refers to or the ucc.xml parameter ?


Is there a non-default option which allows the client to run ?


Thanks,


Phil

A future version of UCC (UCC  1.5 GA) will not require admin rights to run and install the UCC client software.  We hope to have this available by end of Feb 2009 timeframe.

Tony,


Thanks for that.


I guess as there has been no response regarding the workaround mentioned above your preference would be to tell customers to wait for the next UCC release ?
