CodedUI automation test won't proceed because of UAC popups


  • Hi, 

    I know there's a separate thread already posted on this but there was no resolve on it and we still couldn't proceed with automating our installer. 

    Please advise how we can proceed with our automation (codedui) test for installation when there 's a UAC prompt triggered.

    Please use search properties to find this pop up window and then choose the operation for this window that needed in this process, which can close this windows and let the Coded UI Test continue.
