An odd thing about Vista+ O/S's is that, once you run a process in elevated privileges mode, you can't run other processes in lower-privileged modes.

Why, you ask, would that be important?

Sometimes you want - or need - to limit the privileges of a process:

  • A very common scenario for me is drag-and-drop.

    Windows' Explorer does NOT allow this to occur between lower privileged processes (like Explorer itself!) and other processes. This is very frustrating for users in programs that take advantage of that.

  • There's also some problems using certain SendMessage commands from other unelevated processes.
  • Setting the state or properties of windows that have an elevated privilege may not work either from other unelevated processes.
  • An install or setup program that needs to launch the installed program will more often than not want to run that program on a lower privilege level (for some of the reasons mentioned above)
So, after some looking around I found two ways of running processes under a lower privilege mode. One is using CreateProcessWithTokenW (see ), and the other is using COM objects - specifically Windows Explorer's SHELL object to ShellExecute a command/program. This can be used just like AutoIt's built-in ShellExecute() function, but of course the program that runs will be at a reduced IL (integrity level).

The code is based on Brandon @ BrandonLive's article here:

'Getting the shell to run an application for you - Part 2:How | BrandonLive'

The usage is straightforward for this one: use it like ShellExecute. The $bWait parameter is only there in case ShellExecuteWait() will be called for either non-elevated processes or pre-Vista O/S's. Example:

_ShellExecuteWithReducedPrivileges(@ComSpec,' /k title Non-Elevated prompt (via Shell.ShellExecute)')

Anyway, hope this helps someone out!

      When a non compiled AU3 script is run with #RequireAdmin, then if the UAC prompt can be authorized due to the fact, that the currently loggedon user has local admin rights, then the macro @UserProfileDir correctly reflects the profile dir of the user of the windows logon session.
      When the script with #RequireAdmin is started by a "normal user" without local admin rights, and I use a domain admin account to authorize the UAC prompt, then @UserProfileDir reflects the profile dir belonging to the AD-Admin account.
      As the script originally was started using the "regular user" I'm wondering, if there is a chance to "pass" the original user's @UserProfileDir to the UAC elevated script?
      As playing around with this feature I realize, that I basically don't know the exact mechanism of the UAC elevation authorization process:
      The script is started by right mouse click, execute script This is invoking e.g. "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe" "C:\Users\Rudi\Desktop\test.au3" as by this registy value: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AutoIt3Script\Shell\Run\Command] @="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\AutoIt3\\AutoIt3.exe\" \"%1\" %*" But what I honestly don't know is, how does the UAC propt interact in the program startup? I guess, that Autoit3.exe is parsing the AU3 source, is seeing the #RequireAdmin and then "relaunches itself with the AU3 as %1" requesting UAC elevated rights "from windows"??? With Process Explorer I can see, that The commandline then is this one with a "!" before "%1"
      "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe" !"C:\Users\Rudi\Desktop\test.au3"  It it should be something like this, then it might be possible to pass the original @UserProfileDir to the second, UAC elevated "Startup"??? <edit>
      I just noticed:
      When I use "WIN+R" and then directly use the command line, I see in Process Explorer, ...
      "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe" !"C:\Users\Rudi\Desktop\test.au3"
      ... then this script with #RequireAdmin is started *WITHOUT* UAC elevation.
      Guessing, that this ! is just reverting #RequireAdmin I tried the "opposite" one as well:
      AU3 script without #RequireAdmin Starting with "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe" !"C:\Users\Rudi\Desktop\test.au3" does not invoke UAC elevation prompt. So to me it looks like, this ! is a "status flag from Autoit3.exe to Autoit3.exe", that the elevation process was done already? amazing...
      the topic Autoit on Windows Vista is telling no details of  this UAC process...
      Regards, Rudi.

      Hello again, i have a code that changes username to favorite, my problem is how to use ObjEvent() function to catch errors, i've red Help File and Forum's Topics but i can't understand too much😐

      Here is a code (I've copied this codes from a user of AutoIt Forum):
      $sOldUser = "Administrator" $sNewUser = "Admin" $oUser = ObjGet("WinNT://" & @ComputerName & "/" & $sOldUser & ",user") $oComputer = ObjGet("WinNT://" & @ComputerName) $oNewUser = $oComputer.MoveHere($oUser.ADsPath, $sNewUser) Thanks for your care, I'm new to AutoIt and days should be passed with my coding and practicing to don't bother you :)❤

      Trying to figure out how to do CallByName on AutoIt COM objects due to the lack of being able to set properties within an Execute() statement
      Several Ideas were Tried https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/200129-set-object-properties-with-propertyname-and-value-taken-from-an-array/
      I think this is the best; Patching the vtable of IDispatch so we can intercept a Fake function call ($obj.Au3_CallByName)
      use it like this
      Local $oDictionary = ObjCreate("Scripting.Dictionary") ; EXAMPLE Au3_CallByname_Init() ; (you can optionally provide a classname here but we patch the main Idispatch interface so really no need) $Au3_CallByName = "Add" ; Method we want to call $oDictionary.Au3_CallByName("Test", "Value") Au3_CallByname_Init(False) ; (Not Strictly Needed unhooked on exit) NOTE:  Au3_CallByname_Init() doesn't have to be called at the top of the script, just call it before you need to call by name...

      Hi all,
      I'm trying to write a script that connects with a VBA/COM API to get the status of a connected phone. I've been looking up and down this forum for tips or other user's experiences, but I can't seem to find anything (even remotely) similar. It shouldn't be so hard to do, however.
      Software I'm trying to connect to
      I'm trying to integrate CallCenter by using their API, which is documented over here : JustRemotePhone API Reference
      Things I've tried
      I've tried using ObjCreate but I don't get any result, it always returns the same (negative) error.
      #Version 1 tried ObjCreate("JustRemotePhone.RemotePhoneService") #Version 2 tried ObjCreate("JustRemotePhoneCOM.RemotePhoneService") #Version 3 tried ObjCreate("JustRemotePhoneCOM.RemotePhoneService.Application") None of the three versions I tried seem to deliver any result other than a negative error value which basically says that the given class is not valid.
      I am starting to get the hang of AutoIt by now, but unmanaged programming languages and object-oriented stuff is still quite a grey zone for me. If anyone could help me 'talk' to this application, I'd be immensely grateful!
      Thanks in advance and kind regards from Belgium!
