I've got everything running on my eeePc. Win 7 Pro and the latest versions of the respective tools.

Unfortunately when i installed them they didnt add the services to autostart. After booting I can manually start them and everything works fine (after UAC confirmation).

My question is: How can I start these services without UAC on startup?

Well, to make them start with Windows, add shortcuts to this folder: %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup. Next you'll have to set those to run with elevated privileges:

  1. Right-click on the shortcut.
  2. Click Properties, and then select the Compatibility tab.
  3. Under Privilege Level, select Run this program as an administrator, and then click OK.

Do that for each shortcut and you shouldn't get the UAC prompt anymore.

Doesn't that do the exact opposite? If i run sth as an administrator, it will always prompt for the UAC confirmation. Even if it didnt do so before. – tilman Jul 15 '11 at 13:11
