There is a very good chance that the control panel applet is simply making registry changes.  I would recommend bypassing automation of the control panel applet entirely and opt for a direct registry update.

Here is a bigger question - are you ALLOWED to do things in the control panel by your network administrator? It is a straight up yes or no. If "no" (not allowed), then even doing it by command line will not be an option for you. Also if "no" (not allowed) we can not nor will not help you bypass the security measure put in place there for this is against forum rules.

If yes, then I have to ask why you are not allowed to have a command prompt and can you have the administrator grant you access to open a command prompt?

AustinP,

Add #RequireAdmin to your script to run it as an Admin - you will need to enter your Admin account details of course. :)
