I am trying to add a ConEmu Here - Explorer context menu integration entry for the Visual Studio 2012 command prompt. I want the shortcut to Run as Administrator. I am not sure of the right way to do this in ConEmu.

I am using the following Command (which works but obviously not as Admin):

cmd.exe /k ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat"" x86

What is the correct way to configure ConEmu to run this as Administrator? If there is not a correct way, how should I adjust the command to make this work?

This should be on the tooltip or should be a predefined item. – gyozo kudor Feb 22 at 15:05
It's impossible to integrate full documentation in the tooltip. – Maximus Feb 22 at 16:47
-new_console:a would be enough :) – gyozo kudor Feb 23 at 21:35
