    Scripting Tool - Vista & UAC

      Hi, we are trying to install EndPoint on Windows Vista and need to run a script to move the local machine to another group in the EndPoint DB . The script needs to run on the reboot after the initial installation thus it is triggered by the run key in the registry. The script fails because it requires an elevation of privileges, The error I receive is "Access to the driver not permitted". If I run the script manually from an administrator command prompt it works fine.

      We cannot disable to UAC and it is not acceptable in our environment to expect users to have to click on an elevation prompt.

      My question is, why does the scripting tool require and elevation and is there any way to get around it (perhaps by changing permissions on certain files?).
