Hi Roger,

I compiled the 31615 version of the source code and my question is why is it asking for Local Admin privileges required to run Collection Commander?

All the manifests say its not required.
    <requestedExecutionLevel  level="requireAdministrator" uiAccess="false" />
Any Ideas?

Thanks

Hi John

level="requireAdministrator" means it requires Admin priviledges... But you are right, it's not required so I will change it to level="asInvoker".

Hi Roger

Thanks for the update. However I'm not able to load these two plugins into Visual Studio since there is no project files for them.

plugin.collctr.cm12
plugin.collctr.scsmdw

Thanks

Hi John

I've uploaded the missing Project files... but be Aware that those are not stable. The next Version will have Plugins for the right click menu. ConfigMgr is no longer the main Focus....

Hi Roger,

Did the level='asinvoker" make it into the downloadable MSI file?

current CMCollCtr 1.1.0.1
date Fri Dec 26, 2014
status Stable

We tried it on Windows Server 2012 and we got a UAC prompt.

Thanks

Hi John

Yes, it's implemented in the release from Dec 26, 2014... At least in my Environment it's working without UAC and I also do not have that UAC shield on the Icon...
But, It seems that if you want to run code on the CM12 Server (e.g. add machines to a collection), you have to run the tool as Admin (or if you Trigger it as right click tool, you have to start the CM12 Console as admin)...

Regards

Roger
