Hello All

Is it possible to run a desktop shortcut with admin rights in windows 7.?

The desktop shortcut is pointing to a .vbs placed in the C Drive. it have couple of msi uninstallation and instalaltion...So every time I run the shortcut, UAC window is poppingup.

Is there any script which we can add in the vbs, to run it with admin rights...

You can try this ,

Go to Properties of the shortcut that you have created , In Compatiblity menu you can find a option for run the program as administrator.

Hi Mahendra,

Thanks for the response...

I was basically looking for a script to achieve this..and I was able to achieve this using the script below..


If WScript.Arguments.Count = 0 Then
Set oShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
oShell.ShellExecute "wscript.exe", "path of the vbs" & " *", , "runas", 1
WScript.Quit
End If

Hi,

Try to add path to this vbs file in registry
"HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers"
Name =path_to_file
Value = "RUNASADMIN"
