How to run Supremo as Administrator with a remote normal user

When launched by a normal user, Supremo can’t escalate the elevated privileges required to interact with the UAC dialogs. This is a big problem if you’re providing remote support and need to perform operations that will trigger UAC.

To by-pass the limitation, due to Windows security policies, we made Supremo able to re-launch itself as Administrator if the access credentials of that account are provided remotely by the controller.

The first step is to connect to a remote machine with Supremo:

Run a remote Supremo client as an administrator with a normal remote user

In our example, the remote user is a normal user that runs Supremo with a simple double click. Supremo can’t escalate the elevated privileges and the controller won’t be able to see and interact with the UAC dialogs.

To re-launch Supremo as an Administrator account, access the upper menu of the control window and, from the Control menu, select Run Supremo as:

Run a remote Supremo client as an administrator with a normal remote user: Control menu

Specify the access credentials of an Administrator and the domain (if present):

Run a remote Supremo client as an administrator with a normal remote user: specify the access credentials

Supremo will auto-close and re-launch itself. The connection will be lost for some seconds:

Run a remote Supremo client as an administrator with a normal remote user: press Yes

Now you can control the remote PC and interact with the UAC dialogs:

Run a remote Supremo client as an administrator with a normal remote user: Supremo has been relaunched as administrator
