Disable Remote User Account Control for workgroups
If you are monitoring a target in a workgroup, you need to disable remote User Account Control (UAC). This is not recommended but it is necessary when monitoring a workgroup computer. Disabling remote user account control does not disable local user account control functionality.
Warning: The following procedure requires the modification or creation of a registry key. Changing the registry can have adverse effects on your computer and may result in an unbootable system. Consider backing up your registry before making these changes.
- Log on to the computer you want to monitor with an administrator account.
- Click Start > Accessories > Command Prompt, then enter
- Locate or create a DWORD entry named
LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicyand provide a DWORD value of 1.
To re-enable remote UAC, change this value to 0.
