stsadm access denied

If you’re receiving an Access denied error when attempting to run an stsadm command under Windows Server 2008, user access control is likely interfering with the application.

Instead of opening a command window by simply double-clicking the shortcut, right-click the shortcut and select Run as Administrator (even if the logged on account is already a Windows administrator); alternatively disable UAC.

  1. Michael,

    Thanks for taking the time to post this up. My solution was to save the stsadm command as a *.bat file, right click, and then run as administrator. So a simple twist off of a simple post, but this was actually blocking a pressing production install. Reminds off for want of nail:
