UAC prompt for Act.scheduler.UI.exe and Act.Framework.Synchronization.service.UI.exe

Why is this happening and Post "ACT! Scheduler UI prompts UAC warning with ACT! 2013 SP (15.1)" is not solution considering I have Win10 Home 64bit, Office 365-32bit, Act Prem 19.2.

If you are on v20 the published certificate is good until 2018 when clicking details.  However, the certificate is not about registering with a someone, but more telling user where the exe came from.  Sort of like extra info to validate its not malware and help you decide if you trust the application to do things.

 

The Scheduler application is making changes to a pc to run apps in your absence with system changes hence the question.

 

Agreed, ideally a background Service would be better avoiding if Microsoft settings are set high.

However, then some aftermarket virus programs ask to allow Services.  No winning these days Smiley Happy

 

 

Which changes trigger a UAC prompt in Windows?

There are many changes which require administrative privileges. Depending on how UAC is configured on your Windows computer, they can cause a UAC prompt to show up and ask for permission. These are the following:

 

 

Running an app as administrator
Changes to system-wide settings or files in the Windows or Program Files folders
Installing and uninstalling drivers & applications
Viewing or changing another user’s folders and files
Adding or removing user accounts
Configuring Windows Update
Changing settings to the Windows Firewall
Changing UAC settings
Changing a user’s account type
Running Task Scheduler
Restoring backed up system files
Changing the system date and time
Configuring Parental Controls or Family Safety
Installing ActiveX controls (in Internet Explorer)

 


User Account Control is a Microsoft safety feature added a few years back. The "allow" question even appears for running UAC which always makes me giggle.

Hi JM - Follow these instructions...

 

Here's how to turn User Account Control (UAC) off in Windows 10:

Type UAC in the search field on your taskbar. (If the search field isn't visible, right-click the Start button and choose Search.)
Click Change User Account Control settings in the search results.
Then do the following:
To turn UAC off, drag the slider down to Never notify and click OK.
You may be prompted to confirm your selection or enter an administrator password.
Reboot your computer for the change to take effect.

dshaw111,

I know how to but I should not need to.  ACT! needs to address this and register the services.
