Start Non-Elevated Process From Elevated

Recommended Posts

aef03

Before I ask my quesiton, here's what I've found / research so far:

I have found various posts and the code for SystemElevate.au3, but I do not understand if it's impersonate capabilities can be used to start a non-elevated process from an elevated one.

I have found Aaron Margosis explanation of the most resilient way to do this using native code (C++) http://blogs.msdn.com/b/aaron_margosis/archive/2009/06/06/faq-how-do-i-start-a-program-as-the-desktop-user-from-an-elevated-app.aspx

And this supposedly easier method using Shell execute: http://brandonlive.com/2008/04/27/getting-the-shell-to-run-an-application-for-you-part-2-how/

But I don't understand if I can get any of this to work in Autoit.

Does anyone know how to do the IShellDispath2::ShellExecute in autoit - is there already a library or samples?

Thanks much.

Awesome!!!

Thanks very much!

P.S. It would be great if you put some keywords in that forum post (like "run non-elevated from elevated")

Ahh I think you've just done that work for me. :x Doing a Google search on 'elevated to non elevated autoit' brought up your post (and my function came just under it)
