Optim Workstation portion of TDM will not work if Windows "User Account Control" is turned on. UAC was introduced in Windows Vista/XP and Optim still has issues with it. Microsoft has information available on how to work within UAC constraints. Please work to remove Windows Administrator requirements for Optim Workstation to run and to make Optim Workstation work correctly with UAC.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||All Optim customers who are concerned about security.|
How should it work?
Optim Worstation 1) Should work with Windows User Account Control (UAC) enabled and 2) should not require Administrator Rights to work. Current Optim design does not work correclty with Registry and other Windows components if the user is not sign in as a user in the Windows Adminstrators group. MicroSoft Best Practice since Windows 7 (over 10 years ago) has been for software to work with UAC enabled and to work without requiring the user to be a member of the Windows Administrator group (which is a major security violation in most Fortune 500 companies).
|Priority Justification||I have been informed that a new version of Optim (V11.7) is due out in the late summer/early Fall.|
