How Can I prevent the dssamproxy.exe (WSAM) UAC (user access control) popup on windows7?
Our users do not have admin rights on their windows 7 laptops and UAC is enabled. That means that it is impossible for them to use WSAM! Tech support tells me that I have to open a "design request" to prevent this dssamproxy.exe popup. This seems crazy to me because I do not get any popups for network connect on the same machine. I understand that apps need admin rights to install, but most should not need them to run.

More investigation helped me find the easy workaround. UAC is a strange bird. Sometimes it pops up, and asks for what you think are administrator credentials, but allows you to type the current non-admin ones and it works. That seems to be the case here.
For now, I guess our users can use WSAM if they retype their credentials each time they launch it. It still seems like a waste of time and will definetely generate support calls, but at least they can work.
If someone knows a way to get rid of this popup all together, I would love to hear it.
