Run As Admin

I am trying to push a software agent to all my computers and the only way for the agent to work properly is to use the "Run As Admin" option.  I have tried the local admin via PDQ deploy with no success.  Is there a way to RAA via PDQ Deploy?

  • Justin,

    It is my understanding that PDQ Deploy packages run as a service and not in an interactive session so they are not subject to the same "run as administrator" restrictions as a normal user session. I do not think that services need to elevate to an administrator, the user just needs to be in the local administrators group.

    My understanding could be flawed as I am not a PDQ employee, just a fellow user.
