I have a bat file on my desktop in a Win7 Home Premium 64-bit OS.  Every time I log in I right click this file and run it as Administrator.  I'd like to know how I can set it up to run automatically when I log in.  It does need to run as the Admin.

Thanks in advance.

Put a shortcut to the file in startup folder.  Also right click the shortcut -> properties -> compatibility tab -> check "run this program as an administrator."

If you need help about startup folder, look here:

You can create a scheduled task.  Set the trigger to begin the task at log on (you can specify for all users or a specific one).  Select to run with highest privileges.

do the following:
go to start - run and type gpedit.msc
go to user configuration - windows settings - scripts (logon / logoff) - logon - add, and browse to your .BAT file and click ok.

now whenever a user logs in, the scripts will run automatically.

Right-click batch file, properties, compatibility, change settings for all users. T

Tick run as admin box.

Move batch file to windows startup in All Programs

The scheduled task solution is the best because it elevates automatically.

Well, I tried setting the batch file and the shortcut file to run as Admin while in the properties>CompatabilityMode, but the checkbox that would allow me to do that was not active so I couldn't.  I tried to move a copy of the shortcut to the bat file to the Startup folderand was told that that folder is off limits.   Strange since my account is an Administrator account and also strange since I also tried to do it in the Administrator account.  I thought Admin privs meant access to everything.  

Next I'll look into how to create a scheduled task.  You guys gotta realize, I'm pretty ignorant about Windows operating systems so be patient.  :-)
