I am running my application as standard user on Vista and SQLConfigDataSource to add system dsn fails.
How can I elevate this command or run as administrator.
int return = SQLConfigDataSource(hwndP, ODBC_ADD_SYS_DSN, "SQL Server",
                                                  "DSN=" + sTargetDSN + '\0' +
                                                  "Description=" + _T("") + '\0' +
                                                  "Server=" + sSQLServer + '\0' +
                                                  "Database=" + sSQLDatabase + '\0' +
