In present article I would like to share how to give remote assistance and execute applications, on remote client, that needs administrative rights.

Key point is necessity to create a proper GPO (or change client gpedit.msc settings) as below.

What I suggest is to make some changes in your GPO on how the UAC presents itself but does not turn it off.

Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings//Local Policies/Security Options

Policy

Setting

User Account Control: Allow UIAccess applications to prompt for elevation without using the secure desktop

Enabled

User Account Control: Switch to the secure desktop when prompting for elevation

Disabled

After this change you will be able to execute administrative software on remote computers.
