using runas to launch a cmd window from a vbs with unexpected result.
Posted on 2007-04-03
I am trying to create a vbs script that will launch a cmd window under an admin user account while a user is logged in. the problem I have is that when I combine the .Run command with the runas command I am getting strange results. my code is below. the strangeness is that no matter what I place after the runas the ouput is alwas /user:domain\administrator "notepad". I can type in complete junk like "lksjdjfo32445@345" and the output is still /user:domain\administrator "notepad".
could anyon tell me what is happening so I can correct this?
set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run "runas /user:domain\administrator cmd.exe", 9
