Hi there,

here is a run as administrator shortcut that I used.

runas /savecred /user:domain\administrator "C:\script.exe"

First time you run it, it will open cmd windows, so you just enter administrator password, and there you go. The password will be saved, so user can run script unlimited number of times..or untill you change password.
You can enter local user or domain user that has rights to run that script.

BTW. What OS is in question?
