Installing software remotely

When trying to install software on the remote system I am disconnected when the admin prompt comes up. The logged in user account does not have admin rights. Is this by design? Microsoft's RDP would not do this. Also I cannot send ctl+alt+del, it is greyed out.

Re: Installing software remotely

Hi @Phixxer

Thanks for posting.

This is an intended effect of UAC (User Account Control).
It makes sure that applications that do not have admin privileges cannot capture the screen at this time.

TeamViewer needs admin privileges to be able to view this.

More information on the ways to make this work here

I hope this answers your question,
