Reg the UAC window

Hi, I need to install a software as part of automation process.

During the installation of the software , I am encountering the issue of the UAC window stating that "Do you want to allow this app to make chanes in your device?"


I do not want to make the UAC setting as "Never Notify". 

Is there any other alternative to solve the issue as test complete does not recognizes the UAC window

What happens when you try to name map the UAC window?


Have you tried recording a test with the steps you need for the window?  What happens then?

Try to run TestComplete As Administrator.

Does this help?
