Register DLL via VScript As admin

I need to register some dll files on user's PC when they reboot with the login bat script.  I was thinking of creating a vscript that would register the dll files.  However, in order to register the dlls, I need to run as admin with cmd.

Can this be done with Vscript by doing some kind of impersonation?  If so, please help with examples.

Hi

I think you could do this using Group Policy. You could store the BAT file somewhere in network then modify following group policy rule:

GPO\Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Scripts (Startup/Shutdown)

This can be done. What operating systems are you wanting to do this on? Depending on your OS this may work
Try this runas.exe /? Example:
runas.exe /savecred /user:administrator "defrag c:"
It saves the password 1 st time and never asks again. may be when you change the admin password you will be prompted again or do you want the password included?

You can also try this--old DOS trick--works but not very secure; not sure it will work in VB
echo password | runas.exe /savecred /user:username "cmd"

/user:UserAccountName : Specifies the name of the user account under which to run the program. The user account format should be user@domain or Domain\User.
