Getting BGINFO to work with Vista..without the annoying "cannot run as a service!"?

Hello People,

Having a spot of bother when running BGINFO with Vista...check my code below it works fine on XP Pro and displays all of the information via the desktop.

Whenever I try to run this script on a vista machine I get

UNABLE TO RELAUNCH AS A SERVICE
THE OPERATION REQUIRES THAT BGINFO TO BE RUN UNDER AN ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT

Have browsed around the net and even on EE however nothing has helped me and there has been no conclusive fix to this problem..what am I to do?

Hope you can help

Cheers
reg add HKCU\Software\Sysinternals\BGInfo /v EulaAccepted /t REG_DWORD /d 0x01 /f
reg add HKU\.Default\Software\Sysinternals\BGInfo /v EulaAccepted /t REG_DWORD /d 0x01 /f
 
xcopy \\servername\netlogon\bginfo\*.* C:\Progra~1\bginfo\*.* /D /Y /S /E /I
C:\Progra~1\bginfo\bginfo.exe C:\Progra~1\bginfo\meridian.bgi /nolicprompt /all /silent /timer:0
