I am trying to use psexec in my vbscript to run certain programs as an administrator.
Lets take cmd prompt for example. I use the psexec command to open the cmd prompt on the local machine as using admin credentials. The problem is that it opens up, but then closes right away. Here is the code I am using

objShell.Exec ("psexec.exe \\" & strComputerName & "-u " & strUsername1 & "-p " & strPassword & "cmd.exe")

Is there an argument I can use or something to do this?
