Quikc Question: Run As Admin

Recommended Posts

Hi,

If the computer is running on a user with administrative account and the user itself shelled an application, will the application have administrative properties by default?

Not necessarily, for example, the following opens command prompt as user, whether you're an Administrator or not.

Run(@Comspec)

Whereas the following opens command prompt same as "Run as Administrator"

#RequireAdmin
Run(@ComSpec)

You can also use something like the following to "Run as Administrator":

ShellExecute(@ComSpec, "/k", "", "RunAs")
