Windows 7 admin share - workaround

Remote Installation of the Endpoint Agent requires the Admin Shares on the Endpoint to be enabled. If you are unable to enable the administrative shares, you can use this workaround:.

  1. Log on to the Endpoint PC.
  2. Press CTRL+R.
  3. In the Open box on the Run message, type regedit.exe, and then select OK.
  4. In the Registry Editor, navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\
  5. From the Edit menu, select New and then DWORD VALUE (on 64-bit systems, this will be DWORD (32-bit) VALUE).
  6. Rename the new DWORD as "LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy" (be sure to use that capitalization)
  7. Double-click LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy.
  8. In the Value data box, type 1, and then select OK.
    RegistryTokenFilterPolicy
  9. Reboot the Endpoint to make the shares visible.
