    Run script with elevated permissions

    I want to create a startup script which can start a process with network access. I seem to remember that there is a script tool which will let you do this, but I can't remember what it's called. In essence, I will need to create a special domain user account with a strong password and encode these into the script which would have to be encoded to prevent the password being extracted. I don't think this is possible in AutoIT.

    Any ideas?

    Re: Run script with elevated permissions

    There was a thread a while back about doing SU in Windows. I'll see if I can dig it up.

    In the meantime here are two suggestions off the top of my head:

    -How about calling a shortcut which has saved credentials.
    -The packagere that comes with Admin Script Editor produces encrypted executables so there's less concern about logon details in plain text.

    Microsoft has a tool for encrypting VBS scripts.

    Re: Run script with elevated permissions

    Thanks guys. I'm fairly sure it was the script packager in Admin Script Editor that I was thinking of. Now the question is, do I shell out the cash?
