Now that I am deploying Win7 Pro 32 bit at my school, I have noticed that my staff cannot install any software or anything else that requires admin privileges. The are set as an admin on their machine. UAC is turned off. I have tried "run as administrator". If I log in as the administrator on the local machine, I can install it.
I ending up getting an error like "invalid short file name username.user". It seems that most of the problems come when the machine is on a domain... which we are. The fixes all talk about changing a registry key from a domain/profiles to %userprofiles%username.
My question is why does this happen (if anyone knows)? And is there anything that I can do to keep it from happening during the setup of the machine? They are clean installs, no upgrades.
thanks in advance,
