Please note that this option is disabled by default.  Enabling this option on Windows XP or Server 2003 will not generate this error.


Use one of the following methods to resolve this issue on your Vista client:


Method 1: Run Internet Explorer as an Administrator when using Remote Web Workplace



  1. Right-click Internet Explorer icon and choose “Run as Administrator”

  2. Open RWW from inside that instance of IE.  Do not use this instance of IE to access any other web sites.

Method 2: Disable UAC on the Vista or Windows 7 Client


We recommend that you DO NOT disable UAC to fix this error and instead use method 1.
