Disabling UAC on Windows servers.

Some applications require Administrative approval before it will execute.  

We can completely remove UAC by following the steps here:


Key: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Value: "EnableLUA"


Data: This MUST be a value in the following table.

Value Meaning:

0x00000000: Disabling this policy disables the "administrator in Admin Approval Mode" user type.

0x00000001: This policy enables the "administrator in Admin Approval Mode" user type while also enabling all other User Account Control (UAC) policies.
