Preferred Solution: Poser 7 elevation?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Poser 7 elevation?

Hello jyaku,

Welcome to Vista Forums.

Right click on the install file/properties/compatibility tab. See if 'run as administrator' is checked. If not check it. If this is an older version, you could also try running in compatibility mode for XP.

Hope this helps. Please keep us posted.

I have seen this question asked before and attempted a few solutions. Fixing computer problems is not my forte and I would really like an easy to followed solution. I have downloaded the program Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2. It has converted most of my files to OpenOffice.org XML 1.0 Spreadsheet. When I first downloaded them and was able to open some they would only open as spreadsheet files, OpenOffice calc. Now all I get is the above message.
I'm not wishing to make myself unwelcomed as a new comer but I have found things becoming more and more complicated and not as easily fixed since moving from Windows 7. Unfortunately, for me, when I purchased my current laptop it came with W8 which I managed to cope with only just. When W10 came along I was drawn in by the online recommendations and went along with the upgrade.
A friend of mine who knows a lot more about computers than I do has stayed with Windows 7 because of all the reports that are circulating about the problems. He has helped me out with a download that I purchased and was not able to install with Windows 10 by using his Windows 7. He has also downloaded and is using Apache OpenOffice without any problems.
I would just like some help to sort out these problems which Windows 10, I'm sorry to say, seems to be creating. It's getting to the stage where I'll be needing an outside Technician to come help me out which is not what I would prefer

A:The requested elevation requires elevation

Hi easily confused,

I did some checking, and it looks as if it might be a permission error. See HERE for details.

Also, if you are unable to get that sorted out, there is the option of using a replacement program called LibreOffice. See HERE to compare the two.

Hang in there with Win-10 as these bugs will resolve in time and sooner or later. The one thing that might help might be to do a clean install, rather than a basic upgrade. See HERE.

Hi and welcome. When you installed it, did you install it while in an Administrator account? And if so, did you install it for just the "current" user, or anyone who uses this computer?

I'll keep this as brief as I can. My daughter lives in Spain (Malaga). There was an airshow at the weekend and she emailed me with a link to her Google/Picasa page to see some photographs. However, clicking that link in Outlook Express gave me a Firefox "Server not found" message. Tried several times - same result.

Then compared her original email link with the one in FF, and spotted an extra "." in the FF one - ie "picasaweb..google.es" - which I removed and then the link worked. Out of curiosity, tried just copying and pasting the email link, same extra "." appears. Checked email message source, link was OK in there.

She sent me another email link late last night to the local newspaper's coverage of the airshow. This time, the extra "." appears in her email, right after the "www" bit - http://www..diariosur.es/20090906/malaga/mirada-puesta-cielo-20090906.html. Spotted it straightaway. Once again, the "message source" shows no error. She'd simply copied and pasted the newspaper link.

These emails were also copied to her mother, who gets her emails via her Yahoo web account, with exactly the same problem.

My daughter has her keyboard set up for Spanish normally but uses English to us, always has done, and we've never had this anomaly before. Frankly, I'm flummoxed - but it's not something I'm worried about. Unless, of course, that extra "." is a microdot con... Read more

Hello to everyone

I want to install and run "Poser5" in XP(SP3),after installing ,I see this error message:

Initialization Error
"This software requires installation of certain device drivers and a reboot before running.Please reboot or reinstall the software."

by clicking on "OK' and after rebooting when I try to run the program,I see the blue screen (death).
Just I am able to run the program in safe mode.
Now the question is:

Is there any way to install the program to use it in normal mode in XP?it seems that the program tries to load some modules while running in the normal mode,if yes,is there any way to refuse the OS from loading those modules to run it in the normal mode in XP?
Should I change the setting of OS by msconfig or I should change the setting in Poser5 ( after running in safe mode)?

Hi all,

I use an animation program called Poser 7 and to say it is processor hungry would be a MASSIVE understatment. I have a brand new PC, its a PackBell I-xtreme. It has an intel core2 quad Q6600 2.40Ghz.chip set with 3gig of ram and 500gig of HD and i am running 32bit Vista Premium.

Now then, it also have an Nvida card which uses 1.5gig shared memory and has a dedicated 256mb on board.

So thats the gear, the program uses complex wire frame characters and very detailed texture mapps to create very realistic renders, either animated or stills for artistic application. All in all its a bloody good program...but !!!!

I have been told that Poser only uses 1 processor although i cant confirm that, When i have been applying texures the memory of the PC seems to fill up and unless i save and close, Poser ends up telling me there isnt enough memory to load the textures...frustrating. Also The program would sometimes crash just opening it but this has been resolved by someone descovering that in the Nvidia controll panel the threaded optmising should be set to ON rather then just default Auto.....this has indeed stopped the program crashing.

What i would like to know is can i optmise my PC or Vista to give Poser more Power/Ram/Cache or something ?

I am not too good with the tech side of things so if you have any ideas please use "****-ed talk" so i can undestand.

Hi,

I've had zero luck with the Poser support people and have had to take this issue into my own hand. This app *will* work under safe mode but does when vista is booted up normaly. What are the key differences between safe mode and normal mode in vista? I need to start there if i want to begin troubleshooting this thing. I absolutely know its a display driver conflict between Catalyst 8.8 and my Asus software package that came with the video card. Any suggestions?

A:Poser 7, closes immediately after it loads

Safe mode loads basic drivers, and prevents most Anti virus and other prevention software from running fully.

So, you either have a conflict with your av / am software or else with a driver.

I've searched for this problem on the web, without result. Perhaps one of you folks has heard of it and can point me in the right direction.

I have a Dlink wbr-1310 router, which worked fine under firmware 1.01, but I've had an interesting problem since I added the last firmware update (1.03 -- yes, I skipped 1.02, but I always assumed they were cumulative. Please slap me if I'm wrong).

Ever since the upgrade, about 24 hours (or so) after I set up the specifics I need for passwords, port forwarding, time, etc., etc., it seems I can no longer log on to the router. This happens whether or not I change the default password configuration after reset, and it does it for both the admin and user. I'm having to reset the router daily to access it (I wouldn't normally access it very often, it just so happens I had a couple tweaks to make the day following the upgrade, and I've been dealing with this ever since), since the passwords don't work. I'm absolutely sure the username and password were correct.

Any suggestions? (If you can point me to a website after a 5-second search, please don't flame me!)

FYI, I don't believe I was hacked. I run XP home and pro machines on the network. My port forwarding is telnet and ssh to a linux server, and I also run a dedicated camera security system.

I'm trying to do a ipconfig/flushdns. It wouldn't work. So i ran cmd.exe as an administrator, and it worked just fine. However, i found the fact that I had to do this a bit annoying, since i'm already an administrative user. I looked at the file permissions for cmd.exe and i noticed that the user "trustedinstaller" had more rights than administrator did, who had the same rights as the average user. How do I go about changing my access rights to those simmilar to trustedinstaller, or just change my classification to trustedinstaller all together? I don't want to have to find cmd.exe and run it as an admin, every time I want to do anything that might be "unwanted."

Would it be easier if i disabled windows defender?

Also, I would like to change it so that when I right click .html files, they open in firefox, but I would like the "edit" option to be notepad. I know how to do this in xp, and I know how to change overall file association in vista, but how do I change just the edit option in vista?

I am trying to write a simple script that will check to see if a domain user is a member of the local administrators group, and if not, add that user.

I am currently doing this manually by doing a "runas" command to run MMC as a user that already has local admin rights, and then add the actual user (whose account is on the domain) to the local admin group, then have them log off and logon again to make the changes take effect.

Here is what I am looking to have the script do:

run from the command line
gather domain name and user name of locally logged in user
have a "hard-coded" username of a user that already has local admin rights
prompt for the password of the "hard-coded" username (but not show the actual username on the prompt)
elevate the local domain/user to be a member of the local administrators group
prompt the user to log off and back on to make the changes take effect.

Can this be done with a simple batch/cmd file, or would it require WSH/VBS?

Thanks in advance!

I have been trying to mod my system's appearance by installing dlls that came with a theme I found online. I ended up renaming Imageres.dll to Imageres.dll-bak...however after I did that I can no longer push yes or no when prompted by UAC. The actual window doesn't show up at all. All it says is that I need admin rights to do whatever it is I'm trying to do, but then doesn't show the yes or no or password thing. So I can't change it back, and can't put any new files in that folder since I can't get administrator priviledges to do so.

I've been running Windows 8 x64 on an HP ENVY H8-1445 desktop for a couple of months. I have Start8 (Start button plus boot to desktop) and ModernMix (run modern apps in windows) installed to make it bearable. UAC is set at the minimum level (I build live CDs with WinBuilder and it needs to have UAC as off as it gets).

About two weeks ago, without any apparent event that triggered it, installation programs started failing. The problem was elevation; they couldn't do it. E.g. if I downloaded a file and told the browser to run it it would fail immediately. This happens in all IE, Opera, and Chrome. If I download the file and save it then run it as administrator it works fine.

There must be a setting somewhere that governs this, but I sure can't find it.

A:Programs can't request elevation

See here, maybe it will help: Disable UAC completely

I use the Rexx programming language which mostly runs via Command Prompt. Without the above change, every time I tried to run it, it would open a separate Command Prompt window then close it as soon as it finished. Made the registry change mentioned in the above link and all works well now.

On a Win7 ultimate system (svc pack 1), when I try to open any file in the my documents folder I get an error message that says that this operation "needs elevation".

So I picked one particular file that I couldn't open and I looked at the owner in the security tab. Indeed the owner was not set to me. It was set to "Administrator". Although I'm logged in as an administrator, my login has my name in it, so this was not me. (I don't see any other user accounts however). So anyway I go ahead and change the owner to me. If I cancel and go back in thru properties I see that this worked. (i.e. I am now listed as the owner of this file). However windows still will not allow me to open the file (same error messages). I have the permissions set to "Everyone", and all the permissions are checked. (I do this to allow full file sharing, even with non Windows 7 computers). I've tried playing with various permissions, but everything I see is checked. Why is windows still so insistant that I shouldn't open this file?

By the way, I tried copying the file to another drive. Windows allows that, but again I can't open it. Then I deleted this copy, which windows did without complaint. I'm dumbfounded. Windows thinks it's perfectly acceptable for me to have rights to delete a file that I have no right to even look at.

By the way, I have run Malwarebytes and Superantispyware. Both found and fixed a few problems, but still this needs elevation problem remains.

I hope there is a solution short of reloading the operating system, since that will be painful and quite time consuming.

Hi, just found a problem with UAC and programs unnecessarily requesting elevation.

When any program shows an UAC prompt, and I DO NOT want to elevate it, but run anyway (as my current user instead of switching to an admin account), how can I do? Entering my admin user/passwords elevates it and canceling the prompt don't runs the program at all directly.

Any clues how can do that?
Thanks.

Hello Alejandro,

If a program requires elevation to be able to run, then there's not any way to run it un-elevated.

As a workaround, you could use the tutorial below to create a shortcut to allow your standard user to run the program elevated without having to enter the password.

Hello,

I have made myself a member of the local administrators group. I have a script I run on all my WinXP and Win7 machines that connects to my office's VPN. The VPN is a split tunnel, so my script will add the routes to other subnets in my network:

route add 192.168.x.x mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.x.x

As I said, in WinXP and Win7 this works fine, but in Win8 I receive this error:

"The requested operation requires elevation"

I don't want the end user to have to right click on the file and 'Run As Administrator' since the script also takes advantage of user specific environment variables such as %appdata%.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

TB

A:The requested operation requires elevation

I am not sure if this would be applicable for your case, but Task Scheduler can solve your problem.

Just add a task for your script, select "Run as Administrator", enter your credentials and it will run it silently with no popups with admin rights.

Hi Dolphins

Did u try to install the microsoft office using the administrator mode? You can do so by right click on setup file, and choose Run As Administrator. See if that works. If it doesn't, I may suggest you get a Microsoft Office 2007




Hope this helps

Hello,

I have an application that is run from the command line. I cannot get the application to run without error unless I run as administrator. I have two newer versions of the same application that run just fine and do not require administrator. The differences in the code between the versions are not extensive and I can't figure out why the old version needs elevation to administrator to run. These applications were built with gnu cpp and don't have a manifest. The application is actually two binaries that communicate through shared memory. There is a parent process that launches a child process, passes data to the child, and receives data back. I don't know what this would have to do with anything because the versions that work do the same thing as the versions that don't.

Can anyone here shed any light on reasons why windows 7 would require administrator and possible work-arounds?

A:why does windows 7 require elevation to administrator?

For security reasons Windows requires admin privileges to access many system resources. This has been a feature of the NT platform since the beginning. Each new version of Windows has tightened up security to meet the demands of the world of today. That creates some issues for applications designed for older operating systems, particularly when running with a non admin account. Needed resources that were accessible on older systems can no longer be accessed without an admin level account. Newer applications were designed for the more modern tightened security and they run as expected. They may not with a future OS.

Workarounds, if any, will depend on the details of the situation.

Hey everyone,

I have a program that requires admin approval to run. However, I would like this program to be used by a power user account, instead of an admin account. I cannot have the admin elevation asking to elevate w/ password every time, as I may not be available when the user attempts to use the program.

Is there a way to prevent the elevation from happening without making the program fall apart?

The program is PTPublisher, if curious. I should also mention that this is a client computer on a network.

Thanks for any help!

Hello Dusty,

If you like, you could use the tutorial below to create an elevated shortcut that any user could run elevated without getting a UAC prompt.

Lately, I've been experiencing a weird and new problem: Programs I run with elevation (i.e. as Administrator) have been randomly terminated. I'm not sure why this is happening. Is this a new Windows 10 security feature?

Examples: I run Process Hacker with elevation to access all its features and allow for services to be stopped, processes to be killed, etc. But Process Hacker is one of the applications that is itself being terminated somehow at seemingly random intervals. It will be running, tray icons and all, then suddenly be terminated. I won't know it has been killed until I move the mouse cursor over its tray icons, which disappear as soon as I do.

There are several other examples of programs I always run with elevation. They are all being terminated at the same time, but I'm not doing it. It's pissing me off.

Nothing jumps out at me in the event logs.

Any ideas?

Is this a new Windows 10 security feature?



No.






Process Hacker is one of the applications that is itself being terminated



Do you have the same problem with Task Manager or Regedit?

Hiya

A privilege elevation vulnerability exists in the way that Microsoft Windows starts applications with specially crafted file manifests. This vulnerability could allow a logged on user to take complete control of the system

Affected Software:

Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2
Microsoft Windows Server 2003
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for Itanium-based Systems

Where I work a manager bought a /16 block of Public IP addresses and it's been used for everything in our network.

In a GPO it's set to prompt for Zone Elevation in the Local Intranet Zone part of settings.
With IE9 users never get a prompt when going from one intranet URL to the next.
But with IE11 they suddenly do. No GPO's altered (yet).
Reading
this blog I understand why it happens. And it makes sense when you use private addresses for your LAN.

Is there any way I can work around this?

Hello,

Just got a home PC with Windows 8 last week. We were running a program called ExamGuard for the past week. This program basically locks your browser so you can't copy/paste or navigate away from the exam until it's completed.

Suddenly today it stopped working. When running a diagnostic, it states Requested Operation Requires Elevation.

Help! This user is the administrator. Can't figure it out and we have a test to take!

Thanks

Hello Celial, and welcome to Eight Forums.

That usually means that you will need to right click on the program's shortcut and click on Run as administrator for the program to run elevated.

Run as Administrator - in Windows 8

If you like, you could probably use OPTION FIVE or OPTION SIX in the same tutorial above to always have that progam "Run as administrator" when you run it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
