FileInstall without admin rights?

7 posts in this topic

Hello all,

Is it possible to copy/install files in, let's say, WINNT folder without admin rights?

Something like combination RunAsSet/Run?

I've solve it with installing file to the %TEMP% and than running

"cmd.exe /c copy..." with RunAsSet("Administrator"....)

and then FileDelete.....

but is there a way without "running around"?

Greetings,

kami

Easiest way is two have two autoit script. Once "admin wrapper" script and then the main script.

admin wrapper script just has a RunAsSet and a Run line to execute the main script.

You do not need admin rights if you just want to copy files to WINNT folder.

If the concerned file is an executive which starts installation of a software package, then launching it with RunAs on W2K/XP is simple enough. In some cases software installation which does only require copying files and writing to HKCU registry keys, does not require admin privileges.

You do under 2000/XP, unless you have a HP/Compaq install - they sometimes free up the access rights under Program Files and Windows/WINNT

In NT4 you didn't.
