Accounts: User Account Control approval mode for the built-in Administrator must be enabled


User Account Control (UAC) is a security mechanism for limiting the elevation of privileges, including administrative accounts, unless authorized. This setting configures the built-in Administrator account so that it runs in Admin Approval Mode.


To fix this configure the policy value for:
Computer Configuration
|_ Windows Settings
|_ Security Settings
|_ Local Policies
|_ Security Options
|_ User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account to "Enabled".
