StageNow certificate import requires local admin privileges


Audience

Hi,

It seems that I need local admin privileges when I try to create a certificate to sign profiles because StageNow creates the file in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Symbol Technologies\Staging_Solution" . All other files (including the database) are stored in my personal profile %APPDATA%\StageNow\AST. Is there an option to set/change the default folder where the certificate file is stored?

Best regards,
Ingo

StageNow was thoughtfully designed to
make device staging as easy as possible<a href="https://apksound.com/bflix-to-apk/">,</a&gt;
with a minimal learning curve. Creating a
staging profile with all the configurations,
settings and applications your devices
require is as easy as choosing selections
from drop down boxes and clicking on
buttons — all without any coding

I don't quite understand your issue. Is there some reason why you're unable to log into your computer as an admin so you can access the certs you're creating?

I don't login as local Windows admin. StageNow has been installed by a user with admin privileges. But I don't have admin privileges and everything works fine because the database ist stored in my Windows profile. But when I try to import a certificate for trusted staging, StageNow tries to store the certifcate in the c:\Program Files (x86) instead of using the profile folder.
Best regards,

Sorry, but for security reasons, Trusted Staging requires StageNow to be running in admin mode.

This is clearly stated in the Trusted Staging docs:

If you are able to obtain admin access on the PC, you can import your existing staging profiles (after you've logged in as an admin) using the following process:
