PowerShell script to self-elevate

Recommended Posts

I'm writing a set of PowerShell scripts/library for Windows 10 builds. One thing I often want to do is to browse to the location of a script that is part of a larger group of scripts and run it manually to do an install or make a one off change. So I like all my scripts to work well whether run from a task sequence or double-clicked in explorer.

Most of my build scripts rely on having admin rights so I like to make them able to self-elevate if required - or at least give an error message. In PowerShell 4.0 (Windows 8.1) they added the #Requires -RunAsAdministrator statement but this won't do it for you - it just causes the script to abort if not admin. 

Below is a PowerShell script that does the following:

  • Checks for admin rights using the Test-IsAdmin function
  • If not admin:
    • Get the full script path and working directory using the Get-UNCFromPath function
    • If the paths are mapped drives then get the UNC version (drive mappings are lost when elevating from user to admin in most configurations)
    • Execute PowerShell.exe with the UNC path of the script and the RunAs verb to trigger elevation. ExecutionPolicy is also set to Bypass on the command line. The working directory is also set to the UNC path version.
    • Waits for the new process to finish, and captures its return code
    • Exits using the same return code

Script is as follows:

# Test if admin
function Test-IsAdmin() 
{
    # Get the current ID and its security principal
    $windowsID = [System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()
    $windowsPrincipal = new-object System.Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal($windowsID)
 
    # Get the Admin role security principal
    $adminRole=[System.Security.Principal.WindowsBuiltInRole]::Administrator
 
    # Are we an admin role?
    if ($windowsPrincipal.IsInRole($adminRole))
    {
        $true
    }
    else
    {
        $false
    }
}


# Get UNC path from mapped drive
function Get-UNCFromPath
{
   Param(
    [Parameter(Position=0, Mandatory=$true, ValueFromPipeline=$true)]
    [String]
    $Path)

    if ($Path.Contains([io.path]::VolumeSeparatorChar)) 
    {
        $psdrive = Get-PSDrive -Name $Path.Substring(0, 1) -PSProvider 'FileSystem'

        # Is it a mapped drive?
        if ($psdrive.DisplayRoot) 
        {
            $Path = $Path.Replace($psdrive.Name + [io.path]::VolumeSeparatorChar, $psdrive.DisplayRoot)
        }
    }

    return $Path
 }


# Relaunch the script if not admin
function Invoke-RequireAdmin
{
    Param(
    [Parameter(Position=0, Mandatory=$true, ValueFromPipeline=$true)]
    [System.Management.Automation.InvocationInfo]
    $MyInvocation)

    if (-not (Test-IsAdmin))
    {
        # Get the script path
        $scriptPath = $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Path
        $scriptPath = Get-UNCFromPath -Path $scriptPath

        # Need to quote the paths in case of spaces
        $scriptPath = '"' + $scriptPath + '"'

        # Build base arguments for powershell.exe
        [string[]]$argList = @('-NoLogo -NoProfile', '-ExecutionPolicy Bypass', '-File', $scriptPath)

        # Add 
        $argList += $MyInvocation.BoundParameters.GetEnumerator() | Foreach {"-$($_.Key)", "$($_.Value)"}
        $argList += $MyInvocation.UnboundArguments

        try
        {    
            $process = Start-Process PowerShell.exe -PassThru -Verb Runas -Wait -WorkingDirectory $pwd -ArgumentList $argList
            exit $process.ExitCode
        }
        catch {}

        # Generic failure code
        exit 1 
    }
}


# Relaunch if not admin
Invoke-RequireAdmin $script:MyInvocation

# Running as admin if here
$wshell = New-Object -ComObject Wscript.Shell
$wshell.Popup("Script is running as admin", 0, "Done", 0x1) | Out-Null

Well :: is used for static methods/properties in PHP, though I have to admit it's like a mixture of everything in there.

There appears to be a module in Windows 10 Powershell called AutoItX that includes Assert-AU3IsAdmin.  It returns 1 if run as administrator and 0 if not.  At least on my machine.  YMMV.

Hey, don't know if you are still looking for a solution, but if you past the following code at the beginning of your powershell script, it will elevate it for you

function Use-RunAs 
{    
    # Check if script is running as Adminstrator and if not use RunAs 
    # Use Check Switch to check if admin 
     
    param([Switch]$Check) 
     
    $IsAdmin = ([Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal] [Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()` 
        ).IsInRole([Security.Principal.WindowsBuiltInRole] "Administrator") 
         
    if ($Check) { return $IsAdmin }     
 
    if ($MyInvocation.ScriptName -ne "") 
    {  
        if (-not $IsAdmin)  
        {  
            try 
            {  
                $arg = "-file `"$($MyInvocation.ScriptName)`"" 
                Start-Process "$psHome\powershell.exe" -Verb Runas -ArgumentList $arg -ErrorAction 'stop'  
            } 
            catch 
            { 
                Write-Warning "Error - Failed to restart script with runas"  
                break               
            } 
            exit # Quit this session of powershell 
        }  
    }  
    else  
    {  
        Write-Warning "Error - Script must be saved as a .ps1 file first"  
        break  
    }  
} 
 
 
 
 
 
 
# Example 
Use-RunAs

      I need some help with the powershell code below
      #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> #RequireAdmin $PS='Get-NetConnectionProfile | Where-Object { $_.NetworkCategory -match "$Public" } | Set-NetConnectionProfile -NetworkCategory Private' $sCommands = "powershell -Command " & $PS &"" $iPID = Run(@ComSpec & " /k " & $sCommands, "", @SW_SHOW , $stdout_child)

      Has anyone had success managing LAPS with AutoIT?  (LAPS is Microsoft's Local Admin Password Solution.)
      I am running v3.3.14.2 and Powershell 5.1.17134.858 on Windows 10 1803 build 17134.885.
      I have read the entire AutoIT Help file, all of the AD UDF scripts and supporting HTML files, and a large part of the Internet and have researched myself into paralysis.
      My company has more than one domain with two-way trusts and use LAPS on each domain.  At present, we remote in to a jump box in each domain when we need to manage a device there. I want to build a multiple-domain console that works just like the LAPS UI, but allows the user to select a domain via pull-down. 
      At this point, I can't even get the crazy thing to work on the current domain.  
      If I feed it $sComputername = 'T4211BLC1' 
      $sComputerName = GUICtrlRead($idComputerName) $iPID = Run('powershell.exe -executionpolicy bypass Get-AdmPwdPassword "' & $sComputerName & '"', "c:\", @SW_Show, $STDOUT_CHILD) ; Wait until the process has closed using the PID returned by Run. ProcessWaitClose($iPID) ; Read the Stdout stream of the PID returned by Run. While 1 $sOutput = StdoutRead($iPID) if @error then ExitLoop if $sOutput <> "" Then $sStdout = $sStdout & @CRLF & $sOutput WEnd sends this to the console:
      Get-AdmPwdPassword : The term 'Get-AdmPwdPassword' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again. At line:1 char:1 + Get-AdmPwdPassword T4211BLC1 + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (Get-AdmPwdPassword:String) [], CommandNotFoundException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException But if I put this on the Windows command line:
      powershell.exe -executionpolicy bypass Get-AdmPwdPassword "T4211BLC1" ...it runs perfectly.
      ComputerName DistinguishedName Password Expiration Timestamp ------------ ----------------- -------- ---------- T4211BLC1 CN=T4211BLC1,OU=GPO Computers Testing OU,O... YQc7Cl39wFrIF5 6/10/20... So (if you're still awake),
      Why can't Powershell find 'Get-AdmPwdPassword' when called from within AutoIT? Why can't I read STDOUT? FYI - I've tried ShellExecute, and calling a .ps1 from the script, even Run('cmd /k ...) and I get the same result - Powershell doesn't recognize the cmdlet.
      Thanks in advance!!

      I send a string Sun is shining, the weather is sweet to my Powershell script for converting text to JSON request and then to speech.
      This snippet works as intended:
      $CMD = "powershell " & $powershellScript & " -Text '" & $sText & "' -Path " & $outputFile[1] & ".wav" $execCommand = Run($CMD, '' , @SW_HIDE, 0x2) This one differs only by single quotes:
      $CMD = 'powershell ' & $powershellScript & ' -Text "' & $sText & '" -Path ' & $outputFile[1] & '.wav' $execCommand = Run($CMD, '' , @SW_HIDE, 0x2) And only the first word Sun is voiced for some reason.
      I wonder why is it so and is it on Autoit side or PS/JSON?

      Below are some functions that I created when I needed to get some Group Policy information via script.  The quickest way I found to get this information was using the Group Policy Module for PowerShell.  This is not a full UDF for the Group Policy Module.  There are a lot more options available with the cmdlets, and this only touches on a few.  To use the functions below, for a Windows client, you will need to install Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT).  For Windows Server 2012 or later, you will need to install the Group Policy Management Console.  
      Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT)
      Installing the Group Policy Management Console via PowerShell for Windows Server 2012 or later.  Run in an Admin PowerShell prompt.
      Install-WindowsFeature –Name GPMC PowerShell Group Policy Module Documentation
      For the example below, the AD UDF is only required to query GPO names, but is not required to use the functions.

      Hi everyone,
      i am writing to you after a very long struggle i had while trying to figure out how to send a simple click inside a virtual machine running in vmware workstation 14.
      i have an autoit script running on my host machine watching for the UAC prompt to be displayed in a running vm. Both the host and the guest OS are Windows 10. This script worked perfectly with virtual box. It recognized the UAC prompt and clicked inside and the UAC was accepted. Since i switched to VMware Workstation 14, the script no longer clicks inside the VM successfully. It acts as if it clicks, but it doesn't. 
      I tried sending key combinations instead of a click, so that the VM can grab the input, but it also did not work. Every attempt that i made to send clicks or keys from the host inside the VM did not work. I tried using:
      MouseClick
      ControlClick
      MouseMove
      _WinAPI_Mouse_Event
      _WinAPI_Keybd_Event
       
      I also noticed that while the cursor moves to the target which has to be cilcked when my vmware worstation window is not focused, it even doesn't do that when i WinActivate the vmware workstation window first.
       
      Did anyone experience such an issue, or maybe could give me a hint, what else i could use to send a key combination or a mouse click in a vmware workstation 14 pro guest window?
       
      here is my code, which works with virtualbox:
       
      #AutoIt3Wrapper_Icon=".\uac.ico" #include <ImageSearchSubrogated.au3> FileInstall(".\ImageSearchDLL.dll", ".\ImageSearchDLL.dll", 0) FileInstall(".\UAC_ginloSetup.bmp", ".\UAC_ginloSetup.bmp", 0) FileInstall(".\UAC_Yes.bmp", ".\UAC_Yes.bmp", 0) ; set global variables for the coordinates, which should be delivered global $x1 = 0, $y1 = 0 global $x2 = 0, $y2 = 0 global $counter1 = 0 global $counter2 = 0 global $sleep = 10000 global $smallSleep = 5000 ; execute the script in a loop, so that it will hopefully recover from some unexpected errors While $counter1 < 1 checkForImage() WEnd #cs ------------ Functions #ce ------------ Func checkForImage() While $counter2 < 1 ; search for the UAC in the entire screen - 2 screens supported local $searchUac = _ImageSearchArea('UAC_ginloSetup.bmp', 1, -2568, -8, 5136, 1440, $x1, $y1, 0) If $searchUac = 1 Then ; if the UAC was found search for the Yes button in a an area 200 x 200 from the middle of the found UAC image local $searchYes = _ImageSearchArea('UAC_Yes.bmp', 1, $x1, $y1, $x1 + 200, $y1 + 200, $x2, $y2, 0) If $searchYes = 1 Then ; if the Yes button was found click it and pause the script for $sleep seconds MouseClick("left", $x2, $y2, 1,0) Sleep($sleep) Else ; if the Yes button was not found retry from the beginning in $smallSleep seconds MsgBox(0, "UAC found error", "UAC was found but the 'Yes' button was not found. Script will retry in " & $smallSleep & " seconds.", $smallSleep) EndIf ; another way to accept the UAC - via shortcut ;Send("{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}") ;Send("!y") Else ; if UAC was not found try again in $sleep seconds Sleep($sleep) EndIf WEnd ; if some error occured which expired the loop, pause the script for $sleep seconds MsgBox(0, "Error", "Some Error expired the timer and the script could not recover. The script will restart in " & $sleep & " seconds.", $sleep) EndFunc
