So your client bought a Vista Home premium and now you are wanting to tweak it for that setting that allows the Administrator to silently elevate rather than to get the (supposedly) annoying UAC prompt and you are looking for secpol.msc on Vista Home Premium?


And you find out …it’s not there.. so now what?


Regedit and find the section of the Vista registry
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]

Change the value of ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin to a “0” from the listed “2”



[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
“ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin”
“ConsentPromptBehaviorUser”
“EnableInstallerDetection”
“EnableLUA”
“EnableSecureUIAPaths”
“EnableVirtualization”
“PromptOnSecureDesktop”
“ValidateAdminCodeSignatures”
“FilterAdministratorToken”
