Execute a Batch File bypassing the UAC

1 Endorsement
Last Modified: 2020-09-17
Hello Experts,
I am required to execute a batch script which starts or stops a service on Windows Server 2012 machine. I however do not want the UAC window asking for admin privileges to pop-up, as I am actually invoking the batch execute from another application in an automated fashion. While I do have admin rights on the machine, it restricts me from accessing the registry or the Task Scheduler.

Can I please know if there is a way out?
