Free Utility to Determine Which of Your Windows Applications Require Administrative Rights to Run


BeyondTrust Application Rights Auditor is a free product that automatically identifies and reports the Windows applications that require users to have administrative rights.

Once those applications are identified, enterprises can develop informed plans to remove users’ administrative rights without any application downtime, creating a more secure and compliant environment, and lowering the cost of administering Windows computers.

Free registration is required in order to obtain a download link. They also have a data collection policy that can be opted out of.

Supported client operating systems are Windows 2000 SP4, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003 SP1 and SP2, Windows Vista Gold and SP1, and Windows 2008. Both x86 and x64 versions are included in the download.

The reporting management console runs on Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003 SP1, Windows Vista, and Windows 2008. The reporting console is an MMC snap-in that requires MMC 3.0 and Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 SP1. Both are available to download from the BeyondTrust Application Rights Auditor download page.
