Hello. I created a script that installs Bluetooth software, moves files and folders. It also creates several registry keys.

I was hoping to get some assistance with running it as a local administrator. I am deploying the package through SMS and it request the local administrator password to complete the script.

Is it possible to run the entire script as a local administrator?

One of the main articles in the VB Scripting section of this site explains how to run any VB Script as local admin. Here is the link:
