I created simple .cmd file:

sc stop audiosrv
sc start audiosrv

but I have to right click and "Run as Administrator" how can I set this file to run as admin by default after double left click?

    create a shortcut then modify the properties. This will still required the approval of the esclation of the process which means a UAC prompt.

Call it with PSEXEC -h

That will work. Other than that, you can disable UAC completely.


Put this before your script starts:

@echo off

:: BatchGotAdmin
REM  --> Check for permissions
>nul 2>&1 "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\cacls.exe" "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\config\system"
REM --> If error flag set, we do not have admin.
if '%errorlevel%' NEQ '0' (
echo Requesting administrative privileges...
goto UACPrompt
) else ( goto gotAdmin )

echo Set UAC = CreateObject^("Shell.Application"^) > "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
set params = %*:"=""
echo UAC.ShellExecute "cmd.exe", "/c %~s0 %params%", "", "runas", 1 >> "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"

del "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
exit /B

pushd "%CD%"
CD /D "%~dp0"
