Batch Script


I'm getting an error message when trying to run bat script:
"The requested operation requires elevation <Run as administrator>
I need to run the script via task scheduler so I can use "run as administrator option"

Any ideas?

@compx_it - I can imagine you want the batch file to run in the background as it is a scheduled job - it this the case? If so then the suggestion above from QuinnDex is not working as it is prompting for administrative rights (UAC / GUI).

For which Windows version is your question btw?


Adding a task (in this case regedt32.exe) specified with 'Run with highest ...' does not give me the UAC popup:

Test with Regedit
