XP Startup Script
Posted on 2014-08-11
My colleague and I use an automated patching routine which kicks off using a startup script to call the silent installer and patch the machine.
For Windows 7, the script is running as the System account at Startup and seems to have the necessary rights to run. For Windows XP, we determined the System account doesn't have sufficient permissions to run based on the log files.
Is there a way to elevate priveleges for a startup Script in Windows XP to allow the script to run successfully?
