TPM Management is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in. You can run TPM Management as a stand-alone console or add it to any MMC. To start TPM Management as a stand-alone console, you can use Windows Explorer or a command line.
Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.
|To start TPM Management by using Windows Explorer|
Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type tpm.msc, and then press ENTER.
If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Yes.
|To start TPM Management by using a command line|
At a command prompt, type tpm.msc, and press ENTER.
- You can configure your own MMC that includes
TPM Management as part of that console. For more information, refer
to "Additional references" in this topic.
- Depending on the configuration of your
computer, the User Account Control prompt may or may not
appear. It will not appear if you are logged on with the built-in
Administrator account (the local Administrator account is disabled
by default in this version of Windows).
- If User Account Control is enabled, it can be
configured to allow non-administrators to enter the credentials of
an administrator to complete administrative tasks without being a
member of the Administrators group.
- By default, members of the local
Administrators group have sufficient rights and privileges
to complete this task. In your environment, security may be managed
such that non-administrators have additional rights.
