"requested operation requires elevation" - how do I get that elevation?
Posted on 2014-10-01
I have a 64-bit Windows 7 Pro system. It's my personal computer and no-one else accesses it, so when I set-up the user that I login as, I have administrator rights.
In trying to see what ports were being used (to resolve another issue) I opened a DOS window (command prompt) and ran 'netstat -b'. This returned a message 'The requested operation requires elevation.' I can run 'netstat' without a switch and I can run it with other switches, just not the -b switch.
In Googling this message I get the impression it has something to do with file rights/priviledges but I can't seem to make any changes that let me run this switch. And I can't understand why it is so selective with the switch it allows.
Has anyone seen this before, and if you have, were you able to fix it? Attached is a screen shot showing the message returned for netstat and then netstat -b.
