Topic:   Not all users Listed in UAC

By: GuestPosted on: Jan 25 2018 at 02:06:09 PM
I have a multiuser setup. Some users appear in the UAC tab but not all.

The name that appears in the UAC list is the user's Windows Login Name - the name they use when they log in to windows on their computer.

Is it possible that some users have the same login name? For example if the users don't actually login (login is automatic) then it may be that some users have the same default or common login name configured by the person who installed windows on those computers?

It does appear that some users have the some login name, a default user name. I renamed one of the users, restarted windows and started MiniMRP. THe new user name was not listed in UAC. Next I added a new user, switched that that user and started miniMRP. That user did show in UAC.

It looks like simply renaming the user current user does not fix the issue.

Its a windows thing.
Windows is weird. Changing the name of a user in the windows control panel does change the login name but doesn't actually change the name in everything lower down within the operating system.

Safest thing to do is to create a new user and copy the desktop and all the users files to the new profile
