Default Running Shopstream with Admin Rights

I have found this works on Windows 7 machines to run Shopstream under a standard user.

Go to

Download RunAsSpc and set it up. I have only tried it on Windows 7 systems, but it works great.

Multiple PC's running Win7 pro (32bit) on a local domain. Users login and do not have admin rights.
When logged in as a domain user SSC errors out saying SSC has stoped working and will close.
Has any one got a fix to this issue.
Giving admin right to all my users cannot happen. But I need them to be able to access the saved files and print from SSC.

I have Admin rights on my PC and it launchs fine.
I have tried giving users read/ right privilages to the nessary folder that SSC user with no luck.


Just signed up here because I wanted to help everyone out as I've found a solution that works for us. For our purposes, we just want to use ShopStream Connect to read data off the Snap-On device and print, etc. Here's what you do:

1. Open notepad or similar and paste the following line into it:

cmd /min /C "set __COMPAT_LAYER=RUNASINVOKER && start "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Snap-on Incorporated\ShopStream Connect\ShopStreamConnect.exe""

Save it as whatever you want ".bat". (Ex: "ShopStreamRunNoAdmin.bat")

2. That is the default location of ShopStreamConnect.exe, if you have a different setup at your location set the folder path accordingly.

Double click the .bat file you created and it will launch Shop Stream Connect as a normal user and not ask for admin credentials. Note that it runs the application as a normal user, so if you need any admin only components of the software this won't work. For example, trying to open C:/Windows folder inside the application will cause it to hang if your user doesn't normally have permissions to access this location.

From there you can right click the .bat file -> create shortcut, and create a shortcut, add an app icon, etc. I just created a shortcut on the user's desktop and pulled the icon from the actual ShopStream Connect application so your average user can't tell the difference.

Let me know if you need help.
