There are many questions on running CMD.exe as admin on Windows 7, however none of them appear to include a different "Start In" directory / partition.
I can start a command prompt in a different partition by setting the "Start In:" field in the short cut properties. (ie G:\Users\Adam\Work)
I can run the command prompt as Admin by any of the conventional methods: ctrl+alt+e, changing the short cut Advanced tab to run as admin, etc...
I can NOT do them at the same time... Setting the Start In field to G:\Users\Adam\Work and attempting to run the short cut as Admin causes a Network Error (see below)
My Current workaround to is to remove the Start In field (it then starts in C:Windows\System32) and cd into my other partition (G:\Users\Adam\Work) and type "G:" to switch drives. Opening many cmd windows, to do SW development has become extremely annoying. Is there a better solution than this (other than installing an external shell)?
Windows cannot access C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe
Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network.
