    UAC prompt - .bat

    Windowsversion: 1903

    Hey guys

    I have been trying to find a topic that explained exactly what I needed.
    Think is, I have a file that I would like to run, but don't want to type in my administrator each time.

    I'd like right click on the file, and then be able to click on a line under Run as administrator.
    I used to work in a company where the domain management department made Regedit files that would do this.
    However as I never asked questions to how they set it up, then I now have an issue as I want to set it up, but don't know how to do it.


    I'd like to be able to right click a .bat file and then have the user run it without administrator rights.
    I don't want this user to have any administrator rights what so ever, nor do I want my password to be entered anywhere.

    From my memory, it looks something like this picture I made...

    Hope you can help.

    Best regards

    Hello Kasper, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You might see if using option 1 in the tutorial below may work for this for you. It uses a 3rd party program RunasSPC to allow the standard user run it as administrator without your password being exposed to them.

    Hey Brink

    Alright, so I got this file from an old colleague.
    And the contant is this..

    @="Run without admin rights (UAC)"

    @="cmd /min /C "set __COMPAT_LAYER=RUNASINVOKER && start "" "%1"""

    However when I Merge it, then it comes up with an error.

    Do you happen to know what I'm doing wrong?
