My account name is ''user1'' and i don't have administartors rights
The 2'nd acc. called: ''admin1'' is the administrator
My question is:How can i run a Program.exe from my acc. using cmd.exe as administrator(using admin1 rights)

i tried this,i sucessfully connect as admin1, but when i try to run the tool.exe says:Acces Denied
runas /user:admin1 cmd.exe

Create a new txtfile, pase this content:

@echo Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application") > %temp%\sudo.tmp.vbs
@echo args = Right("%*", (Len("%*") - Len("%1"))) >> %temp%\sudo.tmp.vbs
@echo objShell.ShellExecute "%1", args, "", "runas" >> %temp%\sudo.tmp.vbs
@cscript %temp%\sudo.tmp.vbs
and save it as SUDO.cmd.
Now copy the cmd to your system32 folder.

When you now want to run a programm with admin rights type this:

sudo cmd /k javaw.exe JAVA file
Now accept the UAC prompt.

Hope this helps.

runas /profile /user:administrator “Driver:\folder\program”

For example, the administrator account is “AAA” and you want to run BBB.exe of C:\programs, you should do these following steps:

1 Press Win key & R

2 Input “CMD” in open box and click “OK”

3 Input: runas /profile /user:AAA “C:\programs\BBB.exe”  and press “Enter”

4 Input the password of administrator AAA

5 Press “Enter”

Hope it works.

this method seems to work but if UAC is disabled?is possible that ?

works fine:

@echo Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application") > %temp%\sudo.tmp.vbs
@echo args = Right("%*", (Len("%*") - Len("%1"))) >> %temp%\sudo.tmp.vbs
@echo objShell.ShellExecute "%1", args, "", "runas" >> %temp%\sudo.tmp.vbs
@cscript %temp%\sudo.tmp.vbs
and save it as SUDO.cmd.
Now copy the cmd to your system32 folder.

Does UAC is already disabled or you did it?

If you did it then you will have to restart your PC first and then check the result.
