Have a .bat file which needs to run as Administrator, but the option under properties is greyed out. Why is that when I have local admin rights on the computer?

Are there any other file types that are doing the same thing? What version of windows are you using (ex: win vista home) –  Codezilla Nov 28 '12 at 2:01
@Codezilla - It says its Windows 7. –  Ramhound Nov 28 '12 at 2:09
does the .bat run fine? Do you have User Account Control (UAC) turned off? –  Logman Nov 28 '12 at 2:26

worse case scenario you could load cmd as administrator then run the bat.
