Windows8 and administrator program

Recommended Posts


     Under Windows7, if I run the command bellow, this program is started (show its GUI with help for command parameters).

     If I do exactly the same thing under Windows8, nothing happens. And 'RunWait' command return the error code = 0.


    Now, if I repeat this test with "notepad.exe", both Win7/Win8 work fine.

    I suppose this is an administration restriction under Win8, and tryed with RunAs with an administrator account. I got exactly the same behavior : notepad is OK for both Win7/Win8, wusa starts only under Win7.

    Even if this maybe (MS "idea") considered as a security problem, I need to run such a script.

Thanks in advance for help ;)
