Run as a different user prompts for a passcode not password with RSA Authentication Agent 7.4 for Windows
RSA Product Set: SecurID RSA Product/Service Type: Authentication Agent for Windows RSA Version/Condition: 7.4
When launching an application on a machine that has the RSA Authentication Agent for Windows installed and using the option to Run as different user, the user is prompted for a passcode instead of the Active Directory password even if the user is not challenged. Thus if the user does not have a passcode/token assigned and he tries to put the password instead, it gives the following error:
If the need is to be prompted for a password instead of passcode, a registry key should be created.
The Workaround to be prompted for password instead of passcode can be done by creating a Remote Desktop Connection, RDC entry in the registry or a GPO setting to whitelist explorer.exe.
From Start > Run, key in regedit and press Enter to open the registry editor.
Open or create the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\RSA\RSA Desktop\Local Authentication Settings.
