elevated privilege

Q: elevated privilege

Hi, on a new Vista box a remote user installs our vpn connection manager and attemps to log on using the pptp protocol. They get a pop up stating "Connection Manager needs elevated privilege to run the following custom Action(s) to proceed with the connection.

CMROUTE.DLL - to update your routing table."

The user is an Administrator on the PC. Is there a way to modify the privileges to this complete this task?

Note: the user can connect to the vpn but cannot connect to the internet simultaneously since the modifying the routing table is noe allowed.
Thanks
Tim

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hi

im looking to create a shortcut to release and renew my ip. address all with one click. (using a rainmeter skin to fire it off)

but the problem im having is when the batch file is executed (using rainmeter) vista isnt allowing me as the relase ip etc commands require elevated privilages rather than a standard cmd.

what i would like to know is there a way round this? to bypass vista uac control and run a cmd with elevated privilages to the end that the elevated cmd releases my ip then renews it. all with one click. ?

many thanks to anyone that can assist me on this.

thanks for reading

I downloaded a software app. called DAZ 3D. This message popped up: DAZ Install manager cannot run with elevated permissions. What do I do? I am 63 yrs and not all that bright anymore. I do not know what to do and I am afraid of causing more problems or worse problems. I have tried the following: right click icon, click properties, under compatibility i clicked run as admin. didn't work. I went to firewall and added daz3d, restarted computer, didn't work. I went on-line for answers and they scared me ... thus I turn to you for step by step instructions. This old veteran would sure be grateful for your help.

Hey. I have downloaded a game on steam called "Dragon Nest". When I start the game up, a UAC window pops up and tells me that I need administrator privileges. No problem. This is my laptop so I am the admin. The problem is that I don't want this program to require elevated privileges and I am looking for a way to change that. Thanks.

A:Elevated Programs

If it wasn't a Steam game, I'd say try to just set the shortcut to run as admin, which might work anyway.

But since it is Steam, probably best to leave it alone and be glad it's all working for ya as is. One minor thing can break stuff with Steam.

I'm running Vista Home Premium, and there's an account that had Administrator privileges but it doesn't show on the login screen. The two accounts available are a Standard user and the Guest account. I reboot into safe mode but the only two options are the two mentioned. I can't do anything in safe mode as far as the User Accounts applet is concerned, but I ran a "net user" command and it showed that the Administrator privileged account is active.

I can't edit the registry, and the UAC doesn't have any options of selecting an elevated account (it's completely blank).

Anyone have any ideas?

I recently had a problem where my graphics driver decided not to install the update after it removed the working version, now I can't get any version to install. But, that's a different issue (maybe connected though). I just went through and did a full virus scan using pretty much every boot cd I have at hand, as well as malwarebytes (oh, and that's another issue to work on later) and superantispyware. None found any problems except the usual tracking webpages ... nothing major. Ok, so after rebooting after all of that, everything is running in Admin mode! I'm still logging in with my normal username and the Administrator account is still disabled. But if I go to open a cmd prompt I see that the command will run with elevated privs. I can't figure out why. Does anyone have any ideas?

Please help. My computer is running extremely slow and it is almost brand new. I have scanned for viruses using Spybot and Spyware Doctor. Nothing unusual pops up. However, when I look at the CPU usage in the Task manager it will go from 5% upwards of 100% and change by the second. Since the CPU usage is so high I imagine this is why my computer will stall or be very slow opening up programs or executing any functions. I had help once where I used HiJack This and someone showed me what to delete to clean my computer. Can someone walk me through this? Or ss there any freeware available to help with this problem or does anyone have any suggestions. I have a Dell Inspiron 1000 which is using Windows XP operating system. Thank you very much in advance.
 

A:elevated CPU usage

Hi jmontcri,

Check what programs are running (cntr-alt-del) will
bring up the task manager. Check "applications".

You should also check completely for spyware and
virii.

And your virtual memory is probably "thrashing", constantly
re-sizing. You should set it to what would be a "static"
size.

Right click on My Computer. Hit "Properties". In the upper right
you will see "Advanced", then hit "settings", under "virtual
memory". Go to "Advanced". You can choose which drive
to use and you can re-set it manually. Hit "change"

If you have lots of RAM, set it for 400 Meg low, 400 meg
high. Hit set, apply and go out. You will need to reboot.
This should improve speed significantly.

Ok there is a built in administrator ( not admin group) account. sort of like a super admin. there are 2 ways to enable it one involves a cmd windows and netuser,, the other there is a tutorial for in the tutorials section here at SF.

The netuser way you launch a cmd window (type cmd in search) and type net user administrator /enable there should be a password unless you put one in and have used this SU admin before. the tutorial has the steps laid out and you can always refer back to them.
Which ever you are comfortable with

First of all hello to all!

I'm having a serious problem with administrator rights and UAC (i think).

My dad was annoyed by having to press [enter] every time windows 7 boots... so, he deleted homeuser$ by using netplwiz leaving only his current account named VJ with administrator privilege/group. The idea was to make it boot directly to desktop without any prompt. The problem now is that he cannot start anything "as administrator" meaning every time that UAC asks something the YES button is gray (cannot be chosen).

Also, this account, VJ, has no password. I was reading sevenforums and tried to get a task with higher privilege but again, UAC gives no YES (as i said, it is gray).

Can you guys help me in any way - since i'm pretty sure he'll flip if has to reinstall w7 ?

Cheers!

A:Privilege problem

Resolved.

For anyone else - go to safe mode: start > netplwiz > add user "HomeGroupUser$" then the group shoud be homeuser(s).

There you see the command prompt shortcut as the first of a list of shortcuts. Right click it, choose properties from the list.
The property list will open, now choose Advanced and tick the "Run as Administrator" checkbox. Click Apply, Close. Done.

Hello sparhawk,

If you didn't have the user account when the image was created, then that would be why the account doesn't exist now.

If the Reset to defaults option is grayed out in Winaero User List Enabler, then that means you already are using the default settings. You may have undone your previous setting when you did the system image recovery.

Please note that the forum is very busy and if I don't hear from you within five days this thread will be closed.
  Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.
 
Note: You need to run the version compatibale with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

That has to do with your SigmaTel sound drivers. There must be some kind of compatibility issue, though I don't quite know why it would have just surfaced now.

My computer is running rather slow.  I need my computer for work as I am working from home for Uhaul.   Whatever is going on is interfering with the VPN connection I have to have for work. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  
 
thank you

Hi All,

I am writing a dos batch file for windows7 and it has many commands which need elevated access to run. For elevation I am using elevate.exe. I am doing like below -

set Elevation=elevate -wait cmd.exe /c
%Elevation% "cd /d %CD% && xcopy /E /Y ...."
%Elevation% "cd /d %CD% && command 2 .."
%Elevation% "cd /d %CD% && command 3 .."
%Elevation% "cd /d %CD% && command 4 .."
.....

My script calls elevate for cmd and then "cd /d %CD% for each command as elevate changes the working path to /system32 I am forced to change the directory every time I run elevate. It also prompts user for "UAC" dialog for each elevate command, so for ten such command UAC prompts will come 10 times . Commands I am using are mix of DOS command(like xcopy, diskpart etc) and some other 3rd party executable. So there is two problem for which I need some help-

1. How to call elevate for cmd.exe once and run rest of the command in same elevated console.
2. How to change working directory once instead with every command. I think solution to first one will take care of this also.

Any help is most welcome.

I think I understand how Linux handles the elevated privileges, but I'm not sure how Microsoft does it. Did they try to reinvent the wheel or just use public domain code from Linux (A rhetorical question).
When I installed W7 Pro on my PC, it had me create a profile. I then customized the profile to have the basic apps that I would need to administer the PC. I want to demote this account's privileges to better secure the PC. What is the best way to enable
elevated privileges with a password and keep the highest level of security.
I have seen methods (copy profile to a different account) on the web and followed them, but they seem to have issues. I don't know how Microsoft intended this to work, but I would like to know what method the Technical community believes is the right way
to handle this.
Thanks in advance.

Not sure if this is the proper forum for my question, but here it goes.

I'm using a SSH server to remotely access my notebook from work. It works well for SFTP and remote command line access using a dedicated, non-admin, user account.

Problem is when I want to run something that requires admin permission under that connection. The server runs cmd.exe under the context of a non-admin user I've created for it, so I'm limited in what I can do. Question is, how can I "elevate" that remote command prompt to execute admin-only programs and commands? UAC of course will not help under that conditions.

Thanks!

A:Elevated command prompt over SSH

before you enter the command you can use the runas command first. You can also save the credentials so you dont have to enter them in every time.

Runas

Example:

Code:
runas /noprofile /user: username "command"

This probably is not new to many, but I find it useful.

There are times I want an elevated command prompt. I usually type in "cmd", right click on it and run as administrator. If you need an elevated command prompt now and then, simply create a shortcut to "cmd". Right click on the shortcut, left click on properties. Click the shortcut tab and select "advanced". Finally, you can select "run as administrator".

Like I said, just something I didn't think about before, but it's handy to have.

Hello,

We're deploying Windows 10 to all our corporate computers, and I was trying to write a batch file to silently install all the necessary core programs that our employees would need. However I keep getting an elevated access required issue when running the batch file as an administrator. I am an admin on the domain, yet I keep getting this error. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Society

Hello Tara, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, either tutorial below can help you to create a shortcut that will allow the standard user to run the elevated program without being prompted by UAC to enter an administrator's password.

Elevated Program Shortcut - Create for Standard User

OR

I have been trying to register a program I bought and they tell me I must be logged in as Admin.

When I try to get to the elevated CMD prompt I am entering: net user administrator /active:yes

I get an ERROR 5 message and nothing happens.

I have also tried to use the other method using the Computer Management | Users method and enabling the account there. I don't see anything happening when I do this unless I have to reboot the machine, which I haven't tried.

The admin account is simply administrator and has not been renamed to something else and there is no password. I have used the CMD prompt method before and it worked fine now for some reason it won't.

Thanks ,

J T

This is a question on file and folder location.

The program being used creates a file in a directory.

From my use of Win 7 I can only navigate to the file in elevated command mode in the DOS box.

Is there a way to permanently reveal all folders to the Win 7 interface?

Part of the directory tree reads as follows:

c:\users\all users\my directory\another directory\ .file name

In Win 7, all users and the rest cannot be retrieved with search.

The goal is to make a shortcut to the .file name directory

A:Use elevated command mode within Win 7

Welcome.

The folder "All Users" is a hidden protected operating system file/folder.

See this tutorial to unhide.

I have a gadget that has buttons for hibernate and standby to run a shortcut. If I run the short cut directly by clicking it, it works, but if I try to run it from the html button, it will not acknowledge the run as administrator setting. I have tried it with VBScript and cannot change the powercfg - h state.

Here is the html:

HTML Code:
<a id="hibernate" onMouseOver='ShowTip(1,"Hibernate");' onMouseOut='HideTip(1);' href="../core/Hibernate.lnk" >
<img src="../images/Hibernate.png" border="0" width="20" height="20" >
<span id='tooltip1' class='tooltip'></span>
</a>
Here is the shortcut:

Code:
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c powercfg -h on & rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0


Here is the VBScript:

Code:
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run "%COMSPEC% /c POWERCFG /Hibernate ON"
WshShell.Run "rundll32.exe PowrProf.dll SetSuspendState Hibernate"

A:Cannot run elevated shortcut from html

You are really going about it the hard way. Why reinvent the wheel. If you are just going to use Metro/Start, use Ctrl-Alt-Del, to pull up the Start Button. If using 8.1.1, it is already on the Metro/start screen. If always using the desktop, use Classic Shell or Start8 from Stardock.com

When I am logged into a "standard" account, and choose to run a program as an "administrator" with the "run as" choice. Does it leave me running at an administrator level until I relog in or does it just run that program at that elevated privelage.
Thanks, Scott

A:[SOLVED] elevated privelages

Using the "run as administrator" option only runs the specified program as administrator. It does not change how you are logged in but only effects that one program. But note that by default programs inherit the rights of the parent process. If that one program you run as administrator opens others they will also have administrator rights that continue as long as they are running.

The purpose of the "run as administrator" option is to allow you to run an application with elevated privileges without the need of closing all open applications, logging out, then logging as an administrator.
