SU in Autoit

Recommended Posts

I was looking for a Windows equivalent to the linux su command. I found one topic on here, but it is outdated and doesn't work for me.
So, I wrote a small script to emulate the su command.

Run("cmd.exe", @UserProfileDir)

This should bring up the UAC prompt if you have UAC enabled, otherwise it should just launch. Also, you can change the "@UserProfileDir" section to whatever directory you want the command prompt to start in, I just usually need it in the profile directory.

Usually Examples do something more than a single line bringing up the command window, especially when the functionality is built into the Run command. Not really showing anything new...
