Admin rights

6 posts in this topic

Hello there,

it is possible to check if a user is logged on as admin with IsAdmin. If he is not and some operations are failing, is there a way to RequireAdmin rights while running? Or do i need to compile a 2nd identical Script with AdminRights?

Thanks!

Func Check()
    ;Check if user has admin rights
    If IsAdmin() = 0 Then
        $admin = MsgBox(4, "Admin Rights", "User " & @UserName & " does not have admin rights" & @CRLF & "Would you like to add him to the admin group?")
        If $admin = 6 Then
            Admin()
        Else
            Cleanup()
        EndIf
    Else
        #RequireAdmin
        Startup()
    EndIf
EndFunc

;Set Admin Rights
Func Admin()
!!!Code to assign admin rights!!!
EndFunc

Func Cleanup()
!!!Code to exit program!!!
EndFunc

johnmcloud,

Nice thought but it will not work. Autoit goes through the script and honours all of the directives (those beginning with # like #include) before running the script. So you cannot have conditional directives - sorry. :)

yetrael,

I believe your solution is the only way to do it. However, do not forget that you can compile scripts into .a3x files and then run them using the interpreter within the existing file. You can even FileInstall the .a3x file within the first exe to make it appear a single file - I have done that a number of times. ;)

It's little complicated...

FileInstall is more easy and immediate

What's the problem with just putting #requireadmin at the top? If it's already admin then nothing will happen, if he's not admin, or is admin with a split token then you'll be prompted to elevate.
