    help creating a file to run program Run as Admin at boot


    I have a program I run at startup, and it needs to run as Admin. I have made bat files eons ago, but they have to run at the cmd prompt. How can I do this in windows. I'm using Glary Utilities Startup processor.
    Here is the program:
    Process Explorer and when I run it I use the /t option after the process.explorer exe so it runs and goes into the sys tray.


    I'm sure it's simple - for one of you guys!!


    Thanks.

    Hello hooked,

    You could use the method in the tutorial below to create an elevated shortcut to run the program, then place this elevated shortcut in your Startup folder to have the program run elevated at startup.

    I just looked at the page, and saw that this :


    • This shortcut and task can only be created and work while logged in as an administrator account. (This is not a problem)
    • This shortcut will not work in a standard user account. (This is what my question is about)



    That's not going to help me, unless what it really means is that you are logged into an account that is in the admin group.
    Which is it?

    In that case, the shortcut below would be better. Neither option will add it to the system tray (notification area) though.
