I'm trying to install fileformatconverters.exe via a bat file.  I need to do this with administrator rights.

So far I have
xcopy /y fileformatconverters.exe "c:\:"
start c:\fileformatconverters.exe /passive.  

It will not install unless the machine is logged in as administrator.  Can I get around this?

start bat file with RunAs tool

or

You can use psexec tools ( free ) and start bat remotely from another computer

fileformat.bat - example, add in environment path

psexec \\computerIP_address -u Administrator -p password fileformat.bat

I had to put a : between the administrator and the password but it worked. Thanks!  You saved me so much time.
