Script to elevate permissions on W2K?
Posted on 2003-02-28
Hi. We have a vendor that provides updates to it's product that run automatically on login to a machine via a shortcut to the update.exe that we (the IT staff) maintain on the network. We have recently migrated to W2K at the desktop. For security and control reasons, users are not local admins, but they are in the power users group. Since the migration, the updates to the product have not worked because the users do not have permissions to one of the Installsheild directories. I would like to run a script that would elevate the users permissions to the directory. I have never been a scripter and I have no idea how to accomplish this. Can anyone help me out?
