hello

i have a script that has several functions that require elevation.  however there are a few that will only work if not elevated.  i know i can create a separate script to run those functions with runas.  is there another way to run those functions non elevated within the elevated script?

would it be possible with something along the lines of 

RunWait(@AutoItExe & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteLine ... )

thanks in advance

Hello Yes you can.

 

#RequireAdmin ; for this example to have sense

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <ProcessConstants.au3>
#include <Security.au3>
#include <SecurityConstants.au3>
#include <StructureConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

Local $sCommand = _
        'Local ' & _
        '$Dummy1 = MsgBox(0,"Am I Admin?", "IsAdmin: " & IsAdmin())'


$sCommand = '"' & StringReplace($sCommand, '"', '""') & '"'
ConsoleWrite($sCommand & @CRLF)
;~ Run(@AutoItExe & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteLine ' & $sCommand)

_RunNonElevatedAndWait(@AutoItExe & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteLine ' & $sCommand)


Func _RunNonElevatedAndWait($sCommandLine = "")
    If Not IsAdmin() Then Return Run($sCommandLine) ; if current process is run non-elevated then just Run new one.

    ; Structures needed for creating process
    Local $tSTARTUPINFO = DllStructCreate($tagSTARTUPINFO)
    Local $tPROCESS_INFORMATION = DllStructCreate($tagPROCESS_INFORMATION)

    ; Process handle of some process that's run non-elevated. For example "Explorer"
    Local $hProcess = _WinAPI_OpenProcess($PROCESS_ALL_ACCESS, 0, ProcessExists("explorer.exe"))

    ; If successful
    If $hProcess Then
        ; Token...
        Local $hTokOriginal = _Security__OpenProcessToken($hProcess, $TOKEN_ALL_ACCESS)
        ; Process handle is no longer needed. Close it
        _WinAPI_CloseHandle($hProcess)
        ; If successful
        If $hTokOriginal Then
            ; Duplicate the original token
            Local $hTokDuplicate = _Security__DuplicateTokenEx($hTokOriginal, $TOKEN_ALL_ACCESS, $SECURITYIMPERSONATION, $TOKENPRIMARY)
            ; Close the original token
            _WinAPI_CloseHandle($hTokOriginal)
            ; If successful
            If $hTokDuplicate Then
                ; Create process with this new token
                _Security__CreateProcessWithToken($hTokDuplicate, 0, $sCommandLine, 0, @ScriptDir, $tSTARTUPINFO, $tPROCESS_INFORMATION)

                ; Close that token
                _WinAPI_CloseHandle($hTokDuplicate)
                ; Close get handles
                _WinAPI_CloseHandle(DllStructGetData($tPROCESS_INFORMATION, "hProcess"))
                _WinAPI_CloseHandle(DllStructGetData($tPROCESS_INFORMATION, "hThread"))
                ; Return PID of newly created process
                Return ProcessWaitClose(DllStructGetData($tPROCESS_INFORMATION, "ProcessID"))
            EndIf
        EndIf
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>_RunNonElevated

That's for an exe though mostly right?

I wanted to run autoit functions like ie_create and inet_get

Don't think that's possible with that script?
