Problems opening programs on Windows operating systems with UAC enabled

You might encounter permission problems when you open programs as a non-administrator on Windows 2008, Windows Vista, and Windows 7, with UAC enabled.


If you are experiencing authorization errors when you start your WebSphere Commerce Development environment or when you start the WebSphere Commerce Test server, you might be running into conflicts with the new Windows UAC.


To avoid these problems: If you still experience problems, you can take the following steps:
  • Right-click the program file or shortcut, and select Run as administrator.
  • For console based programs, right-click cmd.exe and select Run as administrator. Run the command from the new console.
