    Administrator Permissions (Vista Business)

    If I am logged in as administrator and I set the properties of a program to run as administrator, why do I have to give permission to run the program?

    Can you post a screen shot of the permissions dialog box? Depending on what the program is doing you may still have to give permission.

    In Windows Vista "true" Administrator account is disabled by default. All other accounts has limited Administrator rights, despite they belong to Administrator group.

    If Vista asks you to confirm to run a program as Administrator, that means, the account you are logged in has limited Administrator rights; in other words, it IS NOT an Administrator account.
