Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I execute a program that makes the UAC jump I get the following message:

Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?

That is fine.

But it also asks me to supply the password of the first user installed on this system as mentioned here.

I have a user that is a domain user and I want it to be able to operate as an administrator. I added him to the list of local administrator but to no avail.

Does any one know how to add a domain user as a trusted user?

What you tried should have worked. We need more information. –  Ramhound Jan 14 '13 at 13:12
What information do you want? I will give you what you need. –  Randall Flagg Jan 14 '13 at 13:18
You claim it didn't work. So when the prompt requested administrator authentication information did the user provide that information and what exactly happen? –  Ramhound Jan 14 '13 at 13:47
The user name and password of the first user is given and then everything continues normally. –  Randall Flagg Jan 14 '13 at 14:43
