  1. Hi, When a non compiled AU3 script is run with #RequireAdmin, then if the UAC prompt can be authorized due to the fact, that the currently loggedon user has local admin rights, then the macro @UserProfileDir correctly reflects the profile dir of the user of the windows logon session. When the script with #RequireAdmin is started by a "normal user" without local admin rights, and I use a domain admin account to authorize the UAC prompt, then @UserProfileDir reflects the profile dir belonging to the AD-Admin account. As the script originally was started using the "regular u
  2. Hello all I have a question please Is there a way to request the script for administrator privileges if a particular condition is met?? example local $path = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\test", "fullpath") if $fullPath = @scriptFullPath then Request for administrator privileges main() else main() endIf I hope to find a solution here Greetings to all
  3. Morning! I've searched for a definitive answer on the forums on this but can't find one so here goes. I need admin for one of my functions so I'm using #RequireAdmin. I then noticed that regardless of that function being used or admin actually being required, the program pops up and requires admin all of the time. Is this the way it's designed and is there a way around it so that I can launch my program as normal until admin is required, then and only then prompt the user to run the program as admin? The only solution I could think of is to produce 2 executables and do something li
  4. I've abandoned the FileSelectFolder() approach and rolled my own UDF to create a dialog containing the folder list in a ListView, which seems to work fine. It's also a better fit to our requirements: we don't really want the user wandering around in the folder-selection dialog, plus the UDF displays some associated info for each folder in a second column. Thanks again to the forum members who took a look at this. I'm writing an installer script that needs to run as Administrator so it can, e.g., write files into protected directories. The problem is that when I call FileSelectFolder(), th
  5. After a few weeks of researching and testing, I think I have a good understanding of #RequireAdmin and IsAdmin() for an individual script. They both work in conjunction with each other and ignore whether the current user has administrator rights, or not. In other words, IsAdmin() doesn't test the user, only the declared permission level of the script it is executed in. A separate check is needed to actually confirm the user's admin level. I've included a test script that demonstrates the difference. Here is my question: When a compiled scripts runs with administrative rights, does a
  6. Hi all, I have a problem with a script when I run it as admin. I am trying to get all the mapped drives from the local pc. This is the script I am using ;~ #RequireAdmin ; This switch is going wrong #include <Array.au3> If isAdmin() then MsgBox(0,"ADMIN","ADMIN") Else MsgBox(0,"NOT ADMIN","NOT ADMIN") EndIf $x = getMappedDrives() _ArrayDisplay($x) Func getMappedDrives() Dim $aDrives[0][2] $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & @LogonDomain & "\root\CIMV2") $sQuery = "Select * From Win32_Log
  7. A specific executable compiled with Aut2Exe 3.3.8.1 running under Windows 7.1/64 requests UAC/UAE elevation if it is compiled with the RequireAdmin option. Which is the expected behaviour. However, when the same code is compiled with 3.3.12.0 no UAC prompt occurs, and instead the exe (or possibly the calling program) reports 'CreateProcess failed; code 740' and fails to launch. Just wondering if there are any known differences here. If the issue hasn't been seen before I'll do a few more tests to try and establish under what conditions it occurs.
  8. Hi all, I have a script that updates a program across on many computers company wide. Occasionally it needs to install updates of other programs but sometimes it definitely doesn't want to have administrator privileges itself - so I have called little scripts to install what is needed. This worked fine in 3.3.8.1. It seems to have changed in 3.3.10.2 As a test I wrote two very little scripts: TestRA #RequireAdmin MsgBox(0,"TestRA","This is running") and Testnon MsgBox(0,"Test","This is running") then I wrote a script to call them. $a=Run(@ScriptDir & "\testnon.exe") $a1= "No"
