Windows Server

Error 740: Elevated permissions are required to run DISM

Elevated permission is when a user is granted the right to do more than a standard user. A standard user is someone that has “zero administrative” privileges in any capacity. Here are some guides relating to WDS. BOOTP Vendor Extensions and DHCP Options. For more details on Automatic IP Assignment: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), how to install Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol on Windows Server 2019, and how to configure Post-deployment of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol.

This error was prompted when I was running a script to check for the features in am image. As you can see from the error below, the solution was also given.

article 1: Error: 740
- Elevated permissions are required to run DISM. Use an elevated command prompt to complete these tasks.

To resolve this issue,
– Right-click on the script as select run as an Administrator as shown below.

On the User Account Control (UAC) warning page that appears, simply click on “Yes” and that is all.

Running a program as administrator means that the program has more access to the computer when it runs: It has elevated privileges. This is often necessary to do in Windows to ensure that certain programs run properly.
