RunAs Admin

Recommended Posts

thepip3r

Purpose: If you work in a network environment where your normal account has no administrative rights yet you manage your computer, computers, and/or networks by a completely separate user account that does have admin rights over machines/networks/etc, this program helps facilitate the limitations of the Windows system (on 2000/XP Pro).

Nutshell: Instead of having to right-click an executable and "runas" all of your admin-related programs and pass your admin credentials each time you want to use that program, just right-click this executable and then through process inheritence, every process spawned from within this program's window, runs with the admin account credentials you passed once.

History: I've written this program as a batch file, vbs, hta, and now in auto-it -- each with their own differences and limitations which have forced me to rewrite them in a different language that facilitated changes requested by users of them.

My request to the forum-goers: Please try out this program and let me know what you think. I'd love constructive criticism and/or feedback on likes, dislikes, requests for changes, etc, etc.

Currently this only works on 2000/XP Pro due to me shying away from Vista due to all of it's problems -- I'll eventually run it on Vista and start troubleshooting code but right now, this would only work on Windows 2000 Pro and XP Pro.

Edit(s):

30June2009

- updated a number of problems relating to the conf file and the tab displaying correctly

- cleaned up much of the code.

expect more updates soon

07Aug2008

- Change Help > About information so it displays an email address I actually use.

- Removed path check for custom programs so you can specify executables that can take advantage of Shell Execution.

- Added some System Tray functions to further simplify program management.

* files updated to current.

Pls email me feature requests or bugs so I can fix them (pls be as specific as possible).

Hi!

A good summary of the special folders, and some shortcuts of launching.

Sorry, some entries don't run under Vista.

Hi!

...Vista due to all of it's problems

I use Vista, since 15 month, on several machines. Vista has fewer problems than xp or 2000.

Beware of rumors from those who do not use it.

Remove that line

Opt("RunErrorsFatal") is no longer supported.

open the help file and go to History / Change log.

Read the changes and also follow the link to Script breaking changes at the top of that page.

The RunAS_Admin.au3 you are trying to use is old and the #includes need to be changed in it.

You fixed it I assume or you just wanted to let us know it has errors since you upgrade the AutoIt3 version?

@ the people whining about vista support

It seems like it was designed for XP and rightly so.

haha... i never knew the .au3 file was in such bad shape when i had it posted originally -- sorry for all of the bugs. Many of them have been resolved and I'm only posting the exe from now on as I'm going to be expanding the functionality considerably. Let me know if anyone has any feature requests.
