IPMA / Assistant Console: Start without UAC?

A_
Level 1
Level 1

Hello,

does anyone use the mentioned application? We're using CUCM 14 and trying to install the Assistant Console for few users. The installation works fine, but the AssistantConsole.exe wants administrative privileges?

I just found this and it's not mentioned anywhere: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/admin/14SU2/cucm_b_feature-configuration-guide-for-cisco14su2/cucm_mp_m1ec4cda_00_manager-assistant-12-0.html#CUCM_RF_E699D718_00

How we can use the application with normal user privileges? Why the application needs administrative priviliges?

Thanks in advance

Yeah, edit AssistantConsole.exe e.g. with Resource Hacker. Change manifest 0 from

 

 

 

 

	<security>
		<requestedPrivileges>
			<requestedExecutionLevel
				level="requireAdministrator"
				uiAccess="false"/>
		</requestedPrivileges>
	</security>

 

 

 

 

to

 

 

 

 

	<security>
		<requestedPrivileges>
			<requestedExecutionLevel
				level="asInvoker"
				uiAccess="false"/>
		</requestedPrivileges>
	</security>

 

 

 

Don't know why Assistant Console wants administrator permission. After that it works without admin access. Then you can replace the original AssistantConsole.exe with your modified AssistantConsole.exe and distribute it to the user.

Maybe it needs admin permission because of the log file... so, just change the folder for logs in the settings, if you need it.
