    Is it possible at all to run ArtOfTest.Runner.exe without Admin privileges, and assign the privileges actually needed to another Windows group.

    I do not want to run ArtOfTest.Runner.exe as administrator, as it is high risk. I'd rather give specific privileges to a new group, only what's required to run ArtOfTest.Runner.exe. Is this possible, or is it something outside of Telerik's control (e.g. hooks within Win32 requiring administrative privileges)?

    Hi,

    First this forum is dedicated to support of our Free Testing Framework. This framework doesn't come with our ArtOfTest.Runner.exe. Are you actually using Test Studio? If so I'll move this thread to our Test Studio forum.

    We've implemented security settings in our software such that it should not be necessary to run the ArtOfTest.Runner.exe program "As Administrator". What have you tried doing exactly? What problem and/or error message do you get when you try your preferred method/approach?

    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    Yes, Test Studio Express -- I thought I posted in the right section, sorry!

    Without admin privileges, the test just dies right after launching IE. Doesn't even load the webpage at all. With admin privs, it launches IE and loads the Silverlight pages and seems to test them no problem.

    The .aiiresult file gives me the exception:

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    '1/2/2012 7:31:11 AM' - Using .Net Runtime version: '4.0.30319.239' for tests execution.

    When I launch it with non-admin privs.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the additional information. I need just a little bit more from you and then I'll file a bug on this problem:

    1) Which OS are you running? 32 bit or 64-bit?
    2) What is UAC set to?
    3) What security groups is the user that you are logged in as included in? Is it included in the Local Administrator group as shown in the attached screen shot?

    Windows Server 2008 64bit.

    UAC is set to enforcing (require prompts).

    User is not included in the local administrator group (this is to prevent the user from doing other administrative tasks).

    Is there a reason to access denied using ArtOfTest.Runner.exe when the user is a local admin of the server?  Is there another setting we need to look at? we are on the latest version.

    Hello Art,

    The forum post you refer to is quite outdated. Could you please elaborate more on what the issue you are facing is. How you access the ArtOfTest.Runner and when you get the access denied?
