In Win7, a user can right-click on a program and choose 'Run as administrator'. You get a popup, but do not have to enter the administrator password.
I would like to get the same functionality, but from the commandline - in particular, from inside a
I am aware of the built-in
runas command, but I have not found a way to use that that doesn't end up asking for a password at some point.
I am also aware of the
Process.StartInfo.Verb = "runas"; method, which does exactly what I want, but requires me creating a custom .NET app.
Is there any way, using only built-in commandline tools in Win7, to accomplish this?
Update: Thanks to uSlackr, I worked out this command:
powershell Start-Process cmd.exe -Verb RunAs
Of course, the
cmd.exe is just a placeholder.
