I need to elevate certain applications, when launched, to run with an elevated (administrator level) security token. The token swap can happen on the fly or as an application wrapper.

I have looked at several applications and find them ok, one even stands out above the rest, however my company is in extreme cost savings and are unable/unwilling to spend the money.

I have seen Functions such as _Security__CreateProcessWithToken and _Security__AdjustTokenPrivileges, but I am still relatively new to AutoIT and am not sure how to utilize some of the advanced features.

I appreciate any help.

Thanks,

Joshua Barnette

John,

I appreciate the quick response I have seen that posting when searching for a solution before I posted the question. That seems to deal with UAC and those permissions versus actually passing an elevated token, which would give the process admin rights even if the logged on account doesn't have them. Something that may help is to take a look at ViewFinity Privilege Management or BeyondTrust PowerBroker Desktops.

Thanks Again.

JoshuaBarnette,

You can look at them all you like, but advertising them here is not permitted. :)

      AutoIt3 Lua Wrapper
      This is an AutoIt3 wrapper for the Lua scripting language. Consider it beta software, but since I will be using it in commercial product, expect it to evolve.
      It has been developped with Lua 5.3.5. Updates will come for new Lua version.
      Everything works just fine, except one (big) limitation: Anything that throws a Lua error (using C setjmp/longjmp functionality) will crash your AutoIt program. That means that it is impossible to use throw errors from an AutoIt function called by Lua (luaL_check*, lua_error...).
      It is hosted in Github: https://github.com/matwachich/au3lua
      Simple example
      #include <lua.au3> #include <lua_dlls.au3> ; Initialize library _lua_Startup(_lua_ExtractDll()) OnAutoItExitRegister(_lua_Shutdown) ; create new execution state $pState = _luaL_newState() _luaopen_base($pState) ; needed for the lua's print function $iRet = _luaL_doString($pState, 'print("Hello, world!")') If $iRet <> $LUA_OK Then ; read the error description on top of the stack ConsoleWrite("!> Error: " & _lua_toString($pState, -1) & @CRLF) Exit EndIf ; close the state to free memory (you MUST call this function, this is not AutoIt's automatic memory management, it's a C library) _lua_close($pState)

      Q1) How to do GUIDelete() while using the script when a specific process starts?
      Q2) How to change (X) "Close"button behavior? 
      Q3) I am VPS Retailer and i want to control my Users that uses bad programs, such as Port Scanners and so on... I had created script to tell me what are they doing, but they removes my script from Windows Registry Startup paths, Common Startup paths, Task Schedules and so on... How to make my script protect itself from being closed and start as main process of windows at startup?

      Hello,
      I've read a article about lua functions here: https://debian-administration.org/article/264/Embedding_a_scripting_language_inside_your_C/C_code
      There are two ways of include lua scripts to your AutoIt code.
      1. Run lua functions by Autoit.
      2. Register Autoit function and run as lua.
      It's even possible to apply second way to AutoIt?
      As we can see on example there a few functions to make it possible.
      It's a lua file save as average.lua
      avg, sum = average(10, 20, 30, 40, 50) print("The average is ", avg) print("The sum is ", sum) This is a C functions to run lua. Can be convert to AutoIt ofc.
      There is a problem with func lua_register(L, "average", average)
      this function is not even detected in Lua51.dll
      We can use lua_pushcclosure instead.
      #include <stdio.h> #include "lua.h" #include "lualib.h" #include "lauxlib.h" /* the Lua interpreter */ lua_State* L; /* The function we'll call from the lua script */ static int average(lua_State *L) { /* get number of arguments */ int n = lua_gettop(L); double sum = 0; int i; /* loop through each argument */ for (i = 1; i <= n; i++) { if (!lua_isnumber(L, i)) { lua_pushstring(L, "Incorrect argument to 'average'"); lua_error(L); } /* total the arguments */ sum += lua_tonumber(L, i); } /* push the average */ lua_pushnumber(L, sum / n); /* push the sum */ lua_pushnumber(L, sum); /* return the number of results */ return 2; } int main ( int argc, char *argv[] ) { /* initialize Lua */ L = lua_open(); /* load Lua base libraries */ lua_baselibopen(L); /* register our function */ lua_register(L, "average", average); /* run the script */ lua_dofile(L, "average.lua"); /* cleanup Lua */ lua_close(L); return 0; }

      This lua script gives you the ability, to search for selected text or word from cursor in an search engine or on an search site of your choice.You can select the engine/site from a list, that you have defined in your user properties.
      To get the right call for your search engine, open the engine and search for one word. You need the url without the searched word. Write to your properties an display name for this engine and, separated by a comma, the url. See my example in the script header.
      For the list with  search sites, you need display name and site address (without http://).
      It will searched for the full selected text or, if none selection exists, for the word touched by the cursor. You can allow in the properties, that also will recognized words with dots (like objVar.Property).
      The script uses the shell.dll. But if you don't have installed it, the browser will opened with an command line call. Thats why the command window will pop up for a short moment.
      You'll find details for installation and key bindings inside the script. Look for free command numbers in SciTE. By default installation, the numbers must be greater than 35 (max. 49).
      -- TIME_STAMP 2018-09-02 09:22:03 --[[ This script publicates two functions - InetSearch.Engine() You can search for the selected/touched text in SciTE and can select a search engine of your choice. - InetSearch.Site() You can search for the selected/touched text in SciTE with a defined search engine and can select a search site of your choice. Copy this script in your Lua scripts folder. Load this file in the Lua startup: dofile("Full\\Path\\InetSearch.lua") Add in "SciTEUser.properties" the following properties with search engines and search sites of your choice: #~ Inet Search Settings #~ List of engines.
