I've been stuck on this issue for awhile. I need help figuring this issue out. The issue is, I'm trying to enable the "User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account", it is grayed out. I'm trying to install a program, but cannot due to the below error:

Activation of app Microsoft.Windows.Apprep.ChxApp_cw5n1h2txyewy!App failed with error: This app can't be activated by the Built-in Administrator. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information.

Based on my research, the "User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account" as to be enabled.

This is a Windows server 2016 server.

    Why are you trying to use the built-in administrator account? This account should not be used for much of anything except error recovery. You should create a new account and grant it administrator rights. – music2myear Nov 1 '17 at 15:34
