Problem: Not able to print reports in CRM because of UAC blocking it.

Notes: A user with local admin has clicked no to the UAC prompt in CRM while printing a report. The prompt was for a program named "SQL Server Reporting Services 2008". Now this is blocked for good.

Question: Is there a way to make UAC forget your yes/no answers. If not for one program then what about starting the UAC from scratch so it will ask you everything allover again.

However I may not know what I am talking about. It might be CRM is not asking to install the Report viewer again.

As far as I'm aware, UAC doesn't ever remember answers in this way. I suspect your theory is correct, in that the first use of a feature prompted its installation and, hence, a UAC prompt. Perhaps the CRM took the failure as an indication not to prompt again.

As a test, temporarily disable UAC to see if it makes a difference. Otherwise, you might have to find a way to manually install the reporting tool. (I'd guess it's an MSI in the install media somewhere, but I've not used these tools)

You are right, UAC doesn't have the option of remembering the answer, either "yes" or "no". Remembering "yes" could lead to security issues and remembering "no" would cause to a lot of cases of blocking applications by mistake. – Alberto Martinez Nov 18 '10 at 0:10
