To elevate batch files manually, you would right-click on it and choose Run as Administrator. Here is a way to automatically elevate a batch file that requires elevated privileges to run correctly. This is equivalent to choosing “Run as Administrator” by right-clicking a batch file. In either case, the UAC prompt would still show up. I have a batch file that executes certain commands and one of these commands requires admin privilege. When I place this file in the startup folder the command fails. Right clicking on it and setting it to run as admin doesn't work. I am told scripts can be programmed to run something else as admin and I am looking for ideas on that.
