How to get rid of UAC prompt for autoit scripts

Recommended Posts

gigabyte

I am running my scripts on a remote machine. Only Disabling UAC will launch the application otherwise nothing happens. If I disable UAC, during running my tests while executing autoit script it prompts for Allow autoit script to make changes in your system. How can I get rid of this message. Tried making the program exe to run as administrator but still its not working.

Edited:

Even in the .net script from where I am calling the autoitscript I am running it as run as administrator. but nothing seems to work.

Public Sub ShellandWait(ByVal ProcessPath As String, ByVal Argument As String)

Dim objProcess As System.Diagnostics.Process

Try

objProcess = New System.Diagnostics.Process()

objProcess.StartInfo.Verb = "runas"

objProcess.StartInfo.Arguments = Argument

objProcess.StartInfo.FileName = ProcessPath

objProcess.Start()

'Wait until it's finished

objProcess.WaitForExit()

'Exitcode as String

Console.WriteLine(objProcess.ExitCode.ToString())

objProcess.Close()

Catch ex As Exception

Assert.Fail("Could not start process " & ProcessPath & " " & ex.Message.ToString)

End Try

End Sub

PLease help

I assume that you are able to run other programs without a problem, if not then the rest of this is no help.

Making the program run as administrator won't help because it will ask for administrator approval, you must have full rights already.

I have a poor understanding of UAC so my limited experience might not be much help. I have had similar problems. I have found that usually, if I install a program correctly then it runs ok without asking for permission. Sometimes it won't. On these occasions no amount of uninstalling, reinstalling or updating will change the situation but renaming the exe to anything else will allow it to run without a problem. Of course you have to give permission for the renaming. (I would be very gratefule if anyone knows the correct fix for this.) The other way is to install the exe in somewhere like the downloads file and run it from there but the user has no protection then so I never do that.

UAC, for all its faults, is not necessarily a bad thing for clueless users.

Granted, you're not clueless, and are using it for honorable (I hope) purposes, however... such knowledge would most likely be a "BAD THING" .

That doesn't make a lot of sense to me, but maybe I'm a bit too near to being clueless. But if you have "such knowledge" has it been a bad thing for you?

Is this of any use

Nope, Couldn't get the idea. UAC is blocking the autoit script to execute .Just dont get how can writting another script works. Please guide.
