can't import rules on vista 64 w 3.9 [Resolved]

Hi, Just like the subject says … running CIS 3.9.95478.509 on Vista x64 … trying to import rules, I get an error message. “Unable to obtain necessary rights. Please run this utility as administrator and try again.”

Am I doing something wrong, or is this a known issue?

I tried cranking up cfp.exe as administrator (even though the account I was using has admin privs) with the same result.

Thanks for any help.

Do you have Vista UAC enabled? If so, this must be disabled to import/export configurations.

Thanks, yes I did have it enabled.

To clarify: it only needs to be off while doing import/export, right? Then back to whatever it was before (back on, for me) after?

Correct. :slight_smile:

Thank you.

I’ll mark this as resolved.
PM an online moderator if you need it reopened. :slight_smile:
