Q: run cmd elevated shortcut ?

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

Preferred Solution: run cmd elevated shortcut ?

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.)

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"

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

I am trying to make a shortcut to launch a program with admin privileges, with User Account Control (UAC) enabled, from a regular user account.

I had previously used 'runas' to launch a program with admin privileges from a regular user account using a similar method in the "How to Create an Elevated Program Shortcut Any User is able to Run" tutorial to create an elevated shortcut. In my case I am launching Process Explorer as an admin user from a regular user account. I had created a batch file with the command, then created a shortcut to the batch file, although the method in the tutorial where the entire command is just written out as the shortcut target is much simpler.

The 'runas' command used to work fine with UAC turned OFF. However it does NOT work with UAC turned ON. I'm not sure why. If I turn UAC off, it works. But if UAC is turned on, even though the application (Process Explorer) is launched with the admin user account, for system processes it shows <access denied> and no network and no disk information. I have verified the command launches as the admin user, since the admin user account username is listed next to the process, and the name of the admin user account is shown in brackets in the title bar of the application.

Interesting I also tried the Sysinternals 'ShellRunas' utility, which also did NOT work with UAC turned ON. I registered the context menu entry, then I right clicked to select "Run as different user...", and the... Read more

I used the info in Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt Tutorial and it soon dawned on me that the applications seemed to be taking a long time to run.

Than the penny dropped - Scheduled Tasks run at priority 7 by default (which is lower than directly run applications typically run at) and the Task Scheduler does not directly provide a way to set priorities. So I Exported each task [that I had added] (as XML), deleted each task, edited the XML to change priority to 6 (which makes all the difference) and then Imported the tasks again. Problem solved.

The point of this posting is really to suggest that the Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt Tutorial could mention the priority issue and its solution.

The solution (Shawn) in the thread

How to Create a Elevated Program Shortcut without a UAC Prompt

(Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create)

ends with

24. When you run this new elevated shortcut, you will now no longer have to click on YES to approve the UAC prompt to allow the program run as administrator.

Where the heck do you put the shortcut?

I assumed it had to run before the program for which I created the shortcut run (at startup), so I put the shortcut in Start ? All programs ? Startup.

However, it did not work. Now, my program was not in "Startup", neither in "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup". I used to know where to look next, but I have forgotten, so I do not know where my program start up on computer startup, only that my program *may* start before the shortcut (and then, the whole thing would fail).

So, I would be most obliged if someone could help me out. Where do I place the shortcut for this to work? Thanks!

I have added many tiles on the Start Screen for applications that I use regularly. I?ve also added quite a few shortcuts to Access databases that I use. I?ve also performed this process for an Excel workbook that I use regularly. They have
been working for years. About three months ago, the tile to the Excel workbook would launch Excel but not open the Excel workbook.
Several times I have unpinned the shortcut, deleted the shortcut from the Programs folder. I then recreated the shortcut to the Excel workbook. I tested the shortcut to ensure that the workbook file was loaded. It worked. I copied that shortcut to the Programs
folder where the tiles that came with Windows 10 and the ones I added are located. I retested that shortcut. Again, it worked by launching Excel and opening my workbook. Lastly, I pinned it to the Start Screen. I moved the tile to the desired location.
I click on it to test it. Excel is launched but the workbook is not opened.
I have 12 tiles that point to shortcuts to Access databases that I have created using the same process. They all work and continue to work.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem or even ideas that may lead to a solution?
Thank you.

Hi guys n girls,

I have for ever got sick and tired of right click -> open Send to Menu and creating a Desktop Shortcut for a file or app....then needing to go to the Desktop right click the newly made shortcut and then removing the trailing file extension, dash and words shortcut in brackets. If you are like me and you want a solution where you just right click -. Create shortcut and forget and not need to do anymore then look no further.

I have small AutoIT app (compiled script) that does exactly that.

Virustotal readout - God knows why anyone would use any of the virus scanners flagging AutoIT as a virus. This indicates to me that they are merely only searching for header info and not actually decyphering any of the code. That should be alarming to anyone.

Currently I have a desktop shortcut to PuttyCyg (a modified version of PuTTY) which I have configured Ctrl+Alt+C as a keyboard shortcut to launch the program. Trouble is, once there is one instance of the program open, when I enter Ctrl+Alt+C again, instead of opening another instance of the program, it brings the window of the currently open instance to the front. This is strange, because when I actually click on the shortcut multiple times, the default behavior is to open multiple instances of the program. How can I change it so that hitting the keyboard shortcut forces new instances to open? Do I have to resort to things like writing a VBScript?

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.

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 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.

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?

A:infected with ZeroAccess - need elevated help

Hello and welcome.  Please follow these guidelines while we work on your PC:
Malware removal is a sometimes lengthy and tedious process. Please stick with the thread until I’ve given you the “All clear.”  Absence of symptoms does not mean your machine is clean! 
Please do not run any scans or install/uninstall any applications without being directed to do so.
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.

Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.

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.

I need to find my login in windows 8 pro. I used Winaero User List Enabler and restarted it boots to elevated adminstrator account and gives no options and doesn't ask for a password. Not sure which tutorial applies to my situation. I think I need to create another user for me. I lost my account when I restored an image.

Don't seem to be able to unbold the text. I think I am in the built in Admin account.

A:Only have elevated adminstrator login

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.

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.

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.

The last three days upon booting up my pc I get a windows box with
"Run a Legacy CPL Elevated"-allow or not allow. Since I have no idea what this message means I have chosen not to allow. I'm hoping you fabulous techs can enlighten me as to the meaning of this particular message.

Upon clicking details this is what comes up:

"C:\Windows\System32\RunLegacyCPLElevated.exe"
Shell32.dll,Control_RunDL
"Stacgui.cpl"
Page=portmap

Remember, I'm not a tech person so any explanation needs to be as non tech as possible. Thanks!
 

A:Solved: Run a Legacy CPL Elevated

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.

I could not find any updated drivers, though perhaps somebody else will. For now I would think you can allow it.

If you wait to take any action until somebody comes through with a 100% definite answer I'm not offended one bit

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 ,

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!

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.

Example:

Code:

Hi,

For those who'd like to use the power of a permanent admin (can of course be reverted) prompt here's how:

Elevated Command Prompt Shortcut - Windows 7 Forums

Open Explorer and drill down to:

C:\Users\"Username"*\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\System Tools

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.

Now every time you run a command prompt you'll run it with administrative rights.

Cheers,

* Username: the account name you logged on with.

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.

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.
