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.

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?

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)

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.
