giving permission to IIS Manager on Windows 7 for non-admin user RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sorry if this thread already exist, I could not find any help regarding my issue. So I need to give permission to IIS Manager on Windows 7 for non-admin user. The IIS runs on the W7, is there any way to give user that logs in rights to open the console and use it. I don't want to give him admin rights due to problems in the past from the developers. we are using

    win 7 enterprise sp1, win server 2008 R2 and TFS.

  • The IIS manager's manifest is:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
    <assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
      <assemblyIdentity name="InetMgr" processorArchitecture="*" type="win32" version=""></assemblyIdentity>
      <description>Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Management Host</description>
          <assemblyIdentity language="*" name="Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls" processorArchitecture="*" publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df" type="win32" version=""></assemblyIdentity>
      <trustInfo xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">
            <requestedExecutionLevel level="highestAvailable" uiAccess="false"></requestedExecutionLevel>

    this means that it should prompt a UAC administrator account to elevate, but a regular user shouldn't prompt. Of course the regular user will only have standard rights when using this, so you wouldn't be able to change certain settings.

    This is a signature
