How to remove #RequireAdmin - (Moved)


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install some setup stuff on Win10. 
 

One part of the script requires just regular user privileges but the other requires admin privileges.  When I run it from the Autoit Editor it works like a champ.  When I build it, Windows slaps the admin stamp on it and then when I attempt to run the part that only requires regular users....it gets all hosed up. 

Is there a way to remove #RequireAdmin? 

I've tried RunAs(username, "", myPassword, "", "cmd.exe", "") but that never seems to work.

Can someone help me out?

Hello,

I'm not sure, if I really get what you mean by telling "... it gets all hosed up".

 

What exactly are you trying to do, and what errors do you face? (your code, pls!)

 

If the script requires full UAC access, you will need to use #requireadmin.

 

Mybe other execution levels might be sufficent as well for this particular setup? See the compilatioin options:

Run the script from an elevated process.   such as an elevated command prompt, or a scheduled task set to be elevated

      I am looking for advice on next trouble shooting steps for my problem.  I have researched this over the last three days and still not solved it.  The main reason "run Scite works, exe doesnt" occurs seems to be duplicate names in executable files but I made sure I do not have that problem.
      I have a "trivial" script that watches for a login window to pop up, inserts PW and enter/closes.  It worked for a year then I experimented with #RequireAdmin on another problem and ran/compiled this one with RequireAdmin to check out what happens as a learning excercise.  Now the compiled version MUST be run with admin rights, and I get the UAC approval window  which I must avoid in my application, but the SciTe editor version runs from the tools menu (F5) just fine, no UAC.  The correlation between using RequireAdmin for a while  and the run problem is probably just a coincidence, but I am suspicious.
       
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ;#RequireAdmin ;trying with and without #requireadmin Opt("SendCapslockMode", 0) ;make sure caps are off Send("{CapsLock off}") Local $myTitle = "User Login Dialog" Local $myPW = "password" & "{ENTER} ; Wait max 10 seconds for the Sign In window to appear. If Not (WinWait($myTitle, "", 10)) Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL + $MB_ICONERROR, "Error", "LogIn window did not appear or is timed out") EndIf If WinActivate($myTitle) Then ControlSend($myTitle, "", "", $myPW ) ;alternate, also works in editor ;Send($myPW & "{ENTER}") ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL + $MB_ICONERROR, "INFO", "SENT $myPW enter") Else MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL + $MB_ICONERROR, "Error", "Sign In Window did not activate") EndIf Sleep(2000) If (WinExists($myTitle)) Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL + $MB_ICONERROR, "Error", "LOGIN FAILED") EndIf More info that may be relevant, at least as background info: The LogIn window is from a custom addin to Excel, does not have control ID access to the user/pw entry locations, just the enter/cancel buttons are found by AU3Info.  Thus I had to resort to Send, or ControlSend with just the default selection on popup of where the entries go.  Fortunately the UserID area remains populated between uses and the PW entry "window" is automatically selected at window popup so I just enter PW text and {enter}.
      I can run the compiled file as administrator, OK the UAC window "do you want to allow...", and it runs. (right click the file in file explorer, select "Run as Administrator".
      Trying to accept this issue I tried ways to "bypass" the UAC window.   I followed instructions on CNET to run the exe file as administrator automatically but the UAC window still comes up: Always run a program in administrator mode in Windows 10 - CNET
      I tried to create a shortcut to the exe file through the scheduler following these instructions (other links give the same set of instructions), did not seem to run at all, could not track down any errors I might have made. Open any program as administrator without UAC prompt (winaero.com)
      Is there any system settings permanently changed by RequireAdmin?  What should I look at to have the exe file run without the UAC window?
      Regards and stay healthy!

      Hello all
      I have a question please
      Is there a way to request the script for administrator privileges if a particular condition is met??
      example
      local $path = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\test", "fullpath")
      if $fullPath = @scriptFullPath then
      Request for administrator privileges
      main()
      else
      main()
      endIf
      I hope to find a solution here
      Greetings to all

      Curious if anyone knows if the permissions UDF can be used with certificates and if so, how.
      This is the code in the UDF for $_SE_OBJECT_TYPE which doesn't state anything about certs and not sure if it would fall under one of the object types listed:
      Global Enum _ ;$_SE_OBJECT_TYPE $SE_UNKNOWN_OBJECT_TYPE = 0, _ ;Unknown object type. $SE_FILE_OBJECT, _ ;Indicates a file or directory. Can be an absolute path, such as FileName.dat, C:\DirectoryName\FileName.dat, or a handle to an opened file $SE_SERVICE, _;Indicates a Windows service. A service object can be a local service, such as ServiceName, or a remote service, such as \\ComputerName\ServiceName, or a handle to a service $SE_PRINTER, _;Indicates a printer. A printer object can be a local printer, such as PrinterName, or a remote printer, such as \\ComputerName\PrinterName. $SE_REGISTRY_KEY, _;Indicates a registry key. The names can be in the format 'HKLM\SOFTWARE\Example', or 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Example'. It can also be a handle to a registry key $SE_LMSHARE, _;Indicates a network share. A share object can be local, such as ShareName, or remote, such as \\ComputerName\ShareName. $SE_KERNEL_OBJECT, _;Indicates a local kernel object. All types of kernel objects are supported. ie, A process handle obtained with _Permissions_OpenProcess $SE_WINDOW_OBJECT, _;Indicates a window station or desktop object on the local computer. $SE_DS_OBJECT, _;Indicates a directory service object or a property set or property of a directory service object. e.g.CN=SomeObject,OU=ou2,OU=ou1,DC=DomainName,DC=CompanyName,DC=com,O=internet $SE_DS_OBJECT_ALL, _;Indicates a directory service object and all of its property sets and properties. $SE_PROVIDER_DEFINED_OBJECT, _;Indicates a provider-defined object. $SE_WMIGUID_OBJECT, _;Indicates a WMI object. $SE_REGISTRY_WOW64_32KEY;Indicates an object for a registry entry under WOW64. ;$_SE_OBJECT_TYPE What I'm trying to do is add another user to a cert in Certificates (Local  Computer) > Personal > Certificates as if using the "manage private keys" command via the MMC.
      Thanks...

      _IELoadWait($oIE)
      $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input")
      for $oInput in $oInputs
          if $oInput.type = "text" And $oInput.name = "userid" And $oInput.size = "12" Then $oUser = $oInput
          if $oInput.type = "password" And $oInput.name = "password" And $oInput.size = "12" Then $oPass = $oInput
          if $oInput.type = "submit" And $oInput.value = "loginformtable" Then $oSubmit = $oInput
          if isObj($oUser) And isObj($oPass) And isObj($oSubmit) then exitloop
      Next
      $oUser.value = $sUser
