I have recently upgraded our Quick Fields 8.3 scanning station to Windows 7. Quick Fields is requesting administrator rights just to open the application. The IT security policy prohibits local administrator rights; it also prohibits disabling User Access Controls (UAC).
- How can Quick Fields be used without local admin or UAC disabled?
- Why are these elevated permissions required in Quick Fields, but not when using Laserfiche Scanning?
- What is the minimum access required to (specific files/folders if necessary) for users to utilize Quick Fields using Windows 7?
- Is the information found in this thread accurate?
Here's what I've been told from LF Support in the past.
Windows rights needed for Laserfiche Scanning
-No additional rights needed
Windows Power User
-Full rights to "setscan.ini" file in the Windows folder (Other option is to give full rights to the Windows folder)
-Full rights to "setscan.ini"
-Full rights to Hkey_Current_user\Software\Laserfiche
-Full rights to users Temp folder.
A properly coded application should not require administrator rights just to run in Windows 7. This doesn't happen with other scan software I've used. Please advise.
