CardStudio Repeatedly Asks for Administrator Credentials

Article ID: 77541904

Issue / Question

How do I prevent the Administrator Credentials message to pop up?

Applicable To

Zebra CardStudio V1.1 up to and including V1.27.

Windows 7 Operating Systems

CardStudio software installed on a corporate network

Users who do not have admin rights

Resolution / Answer

Windows 7 User Access Control (UAC) feature responds with the following message

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

In addition you may be prompted for administrator credentials whenever users try to open Zebra CardStudio Software. 



The request for credentials is a feature of Microsoft Windows 7 UAC (User Account Control) whenever an application makes a change to the system. If the computer is on a corporate network most users will not have local administrator access rights and therefore cannot change the UAC settings.


CardStudio V1.30 needs to be installed as this version of the software will not show this message, or the user will need to have Admin Rights on the computer with the installed software
