If a limited user runs the First Run Wizard elevated, any changes to user settings will only affect the admin user’s account.
|Bug report type||Non-fatal bug|
|Program affected||Project Nelson (v1.0 Build 019 and v1.0 Build 020)|
|Details||When the First Run Wizard launches, it will prompt the user to elevate so they can update certain system-wide settings like adding and editing programs and their paths. Limited users must use the credentials of administrators to elevate programs, and since the wizard saves its settings to the user account with the credentials it was opened with, the settings will only affect the admin account.|
|Steps to reproduce|
Many settings can be accessed in SettingsPN without elevation. To run SettingsPN from Project Nelson, switch to the Control Panel page and click SettingsPN. Change the setting, then click OK.
To set the default programs for each application (which requires elevation), you will have to temporarily change the account from a limited account to an administrator. Switch to the Control Panel page, and then click User Accounts. In the User Accounts window, click Change your account type. Accept the UAC prompt that appears (Windows Vista). Change your account type from Standard user to Administrator. Click OK. Now, click on the Home button in Project Nelson. In the Run box, type “FirstRun.exe” and click Run. Confirm the UAC dialog (Windows Vista/7). Complete the wizard. Finally, switch your account back to Standard user under Change your account type in the User Accounts window.
|Status||WILL_FIX in v1.0 Build 022.|
