RequireAdmin on specific tasks?

4 posts in this topic

I've been trying to get around having to use the ever annoying UAC in Vista and 7. I don't want to use the #RequireAdmin in my app because it will ask everytime it's launched. Is there a solution for using that for specfic functions or tasks in your script/app?

I only need it when I access certain areas or write to certain files. How do big programs like Photoshop make changes to the registry or ini files and I not get the UAC prompt?

Sweet, Oh well I solved it. If I use ShellExecute() to run the command instead of Run(). The operation system shell will recognize that prvileges are needed and will prompt the UAC. Example would be calling the registry editor by Regedit.exe will not work with Run() but will with ShellExecute() and prompt the UAC as it did if you did it from the command line. Exactly what I wanted so I didn't have to use #RequireAdmin on my entire script.

I guess I was writing when you posted. I got around the ini by putting it in the AppData where it's probably better suited anyway, but what bothered me the most is running .exes that needed privleges just like the other guy in the thread you noted. So the ShellExecute() "should" work for him too.
