Is it possible to install the 1Password 6 Beta without UAC prompt ?


We want to use our Active Directory to install 1Password 6 Beta on all our Windows 10 PCs, but we need for each installation and update an admin password, because every time the UAC prompt shows up.

Is it possible, to improve the MSI Installer or skip the UAC prompt without any security issues ?

1Password Version: 6
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Windows 10
Sync Type: Not Provided

    @dsenske: It's something we may be able to do in the future. But bear in mind that you'll likely
    need administrative privileges to install .Net regardless.

    And while it isn't a good option right now, the Universal Windows Store app won't require admin rights. So that may be a good option in the future too once it's completed. Thanks for bringing this up! :)

    Hi @dsenske,

    I've moved your thread to our Windows Beta forum since 1Password 6 is a beta product at the moment.

  • @dsenke as a workaround you can install 1Password 6 on your machine, then distribute whole folder. It's not a perfect solution, but this way you can get around UAC.

    The only feature that will require elevated launch (and app will ask it on the first launch, user can simply say No to ignore) - is to register app to start when browser extension can't connect to it. This registration can't be done under regular user permissions. If you want this registration and you can push update to registry here is what has to be done there

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    "URL Protocol"=""
    @="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\AgileBits.OnePassword.Desktop.exe\" \"%1\""

    Hope that helps :)
    We will continue to explore options to ease installation, thank you for your feedback!
