Hello
Attempting to import 2 certs on a Windows 7 clients into the users personal user store and the CA stores with a CertUtil bat script. The script works fine but, only when the logged in user has local administrator rights. Any idea's how I get these scripts to run without giving the user local administrator rights? Open to other ideas and approaches as well.
Thanks

You can have the script call itself with PsExec's -h option to run elevated.

or you can move over to PowerShell which can run most of the cmd scripts.

If (-NOT ([Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal][Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()).IsInRole([Security.Principal.WindowsBuiltInRole] "Administrator"))

{   
$arguments = "& '" + $myinvocation.mycommand.definition + "'"
Start-Process powershell -Verb runAs -ArgumentList $arguments
Break
}

#YOUR CODE HERE

Thanks. Tried using a power shell script and it imports the machine cert into the users personal machine store, and used GPO to target the root  cert. However, the client isn't authenticating even thought the certs are in the proper stores. Reviewing logs to see what the issue is.
