Is there a option to request admin rights in the middle?

4 posts in this topic

For exemple..

I sow that doing something like this does not work

if $Admin then
     #requireAdmin
endif

It request admin rights anyway..

I want it to ask for admin rights only when I need it...

Thank you

It doesn't work the way you want it to work. According to the help file #RequireAdmin " ... launches a new process ..." which means that the whole script runs with administrator rights.

So I would suggest to pack the functionality you need to be run with elevated permissions into a separate script using #RequireAdmin and call it from the script running with "normal" rights.
