    Wow, that was fast . . . and it works perfectly! Thank you.

    I dabble with software only because the whole area fascinates me. Always make a MR backup image before trying to "fix" (and I use that term in the loosest possible meaning) anything. Just for my curiosity, what did you change?

    @Brink, can you upload the following updated version, in which the problem reported by Homer712 has been fixed?

    Create_an_elevated_shortcut.bat

    Take Registry Editor, i.e. regedit.exe, for example.

    The previous version will run "%windir%\regedit.exe"
    The updated version will run cmd.exe /c start "Registry Editor" "%windir%\regedit.exe"

    That is the difference. Thank you for reporting the subtle problem, which I did not notice at all!

    Thank you Matthew. The .bat file in option 1 has now been updated for this.

    I'm probably pushing it now, but in the previous version it was possible to "minimize" the desktop shortcut and all you got was this tiny little split second flash in the task bar. With the new version the "minimize" of the shortcut does nothing and you still get that big black cmd window flashing on the screen. Short, yes, but wondering if there's anything that can be done/set to stop that. And it seems that the first instance after every restart is the worst, seems to get shorter with each additional launch.

    @Homer712, do you mean the following "Minimized"? It works at my end. I see no big black CMD window flashing. Even if it flashes, the flashing will last no more than 0.1 second. Not a problem at all.

    I'm sure it is fine, everything happens a bit slower on this older laptop. Don't change anything. Works perfectly!

    Hey there! Fantastic application btw. I read through all of the forum comments and from what it sounds like, there is no automated solution to bypass the UAC without some sort of manual interaction, correct? I'm trying to create a batch file that essentially never triggers the UAC as a local administrator, but the more I look into it, the less possible that becomes. I do understand that Option 2 works manually, and option 1 is almost perfect, but I was just wondering if anyone here had any feedback. Thank you for the information though! This forum was a good read.

    Hello,

    I have a rather simple requirement i.e, open an elevated CMD (not the built-in hidden administrator account but the manually created Admin account) from a standard CMD by inputting the password in the command line itself. I'm trying to avoid bringing up the GUI UAC prompt at all costs because it brings my system to a crawl with the a Disk-Usage spike to 100%. It can take up to a minute for things to normalize.

    I've tried using the Runas command with all the variations (unnecessary) in syntax without luck. The one time I got it to run in fluke, it still asked for elevation upon trying to run an elevated command.

    I have the hidden Administrator account disabled and it rightly throws up an error as expected.
    Code:
    C:\Users\NAME>runas /user:NAME-P-V\ADMINISTRATOR CMD
    Enter the password for NAME-P-V\ADMINISTRATOR:
    Attempting to start CMD as user "NAME-P-V\ADMINISTRATOR" ...
    RUNAS ERROR: Unable to run - CMD
    1327: Account restrictions are preventing this user from signing in. For example: blank passwords aren't allowed, sign-in times are limited, or a policy restriction has been enforced.
    It's the manual Admin A/c elevation that I'm after but it fails saying password is incorrect when it's in fact correct.
    Code:
    C:\Users\NAME>runas /user:NAME-P-V\Admin CMD
    Enter the password for NAME-P-V-pc\Admin:
    Attempting to start CMD as user "NAME-P-V-pc\Admin" ...
    RUNAS ERROR: Unable to run - CMD
    1326: The user name or password is incorrect.
    I do have to point out that manual Admin A/c which I've named ADMIN shows up as NAME P V in the net user command for some reason.
    Code:
    C:\Users\NAME>NET USER
    
    User accounts for \\NAME-P-V
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Administrator            DefaultAccount           Guest
    GUEST 2                  NAME                    NAME P V
    WDAGUtilityAccount
    The command completed successfully.
    So, tried running it by enclosing the name within quotes but again no luck.
    Code:
    C:\Users\NAME>runas /user:NAME-P-V\"NAME P V" CMD
    RUNAS USAGE:
    
    RUNAS [ [/noprofile | /profile] [/env] [/savecred | /netonly] ]
            /user:<UserName> program
    Also tried appending the computername above with -pc with the same result. Can someone point me in the right direction. I can't seem to figure out where I'm going wrong.

    Thank you

    Edit: Enclosed the whole path "NAME-P-V\NAME P V" within quotes and it did open a new CMD window this time but still fails to run an elevated command.

    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32>POWERCFG REQUESTS
    This command requires administrator privileges and must be executed from an elevated command prompt.
    Looks like it's the harmless swearing

    I'm glad it could help, but Matthew Wai wrote the BAT to help.
