#requireadmin issues

10 posts in this topic

I want The script to only use administrator on cretin systems, to this effect.

If @OSType = "Vista" OR @OSType = "2008" OR @OSType = "2008R2" OR @OSType = "Win7" Then
    #requireadmin
EndIf

This will allways ask for admin. I only want it to require admin on vista, win 7, and win 2008 systems. Is this posible with #requireadmin?

Of course it's not possible. Strange thing is you even asking.

If Not IsAdmin() Then
    Switch @OSVersion
        Case "Vista", "2008", "2008R2", "WIN_7"
            If @Compiled Then
                ShellExecute(@AutoItExe, "", "", "runas")
                Exit
            Else
                ShellExecute(@AutoItExe, ' /AutoIt3ExecuteScript "' & @ScriptFullPath & '"', "", "runas")
                Exit
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
EndIf

MsgBox(64, "", IsAdmin())

So I put this at the start of the script or in the if statement?

At the start of the script

Technically you can put it anywhere in your script. It doesn't matter because it's not actually code.

Also, #RequireAdmin doesn't happen when the script parser reads the line. It happens before the script actually starts which is why your If statement did nothing.

Use

#AutoIt3Wrapper_res_requestedExecutionLevel=requireAdministrator

And make sure you compile with AutoIt3Wrapper.

And don't use the regular #RequireAdmin.

Out of curiosity, how does this differ from the normal #requireadmin preprocessor command? Especially in regards to using it on Vista or Win7? I understand that this will only be used by the AutoIt3Wrapper at compile time and not when run as a script, but does it actually have a different effect when it's compiled than #requireadmin?

Instead of AutoIt rerunning itself if it isn't running as an administrator, AutoIt doesn't check at all. The wrapper's option changes the executable manifest so Windows will give it the "admin badge" and call the UAC dialog when it needs to.

I understand now, very handy to know. Thanks for the information.
