  • XP Guest account - cannot install BIT license

    We have some machines come in without a supplied Windows password (due to sensitive data etc..), but they give us a Guest account which we can use for testing.

    The problem is that BurnIn Test requires an admin account to install the license, which we dont have access to.

    This error is given:
    "Please run this program from the Administrator account so it can set up your license. Once the license is set up, you can run it from any account"

    Is there a way to bypass this somehow?
    Perhaps Passmark could modify BurnIn test so it can run as guest?

    I don't think there is any way around this. At least not without us doing some work. I would just install a 2nd hard drive to boot from.

      Yeh thats our only option I guess. Except for resetting the Admin account password, but customers wouldnt like that much
