I know there is a checkbox in the propertires of a batch file where you can select that this file should always be run as admin. But that checkbox is for me grayed out and inactive both on my Windows 7 Ultimate home system and on a Server 2008 at work.
How could I run a batch file as an administrator without any user involvement. I just want when the file is clicked on to start running as an admin because it is copying files in the Programs directory and cannot do it without administrator privileges.
I have this... runas /noprofile /useran-SlateDan cmd but that requires me to have to type my password, and also just opens up a new shell and does not actually elevate the shell that it ran in.
I've made a batch file, but i don't know how to make it to always run as administartor. In .bat's file properties the option "always run as administartor" is grayed out. I have to right click it and then choose "run as administartor" from context menu. But i don't want to do it every time because it's annoying, is there any way to make run as admin if option is grayed out in properties?
I'm trying to set up a file and sharing network between my PC's, 2 Win 7's and 1 Vista, and I'm having a bit of trouble. I followed all the steps in the tutorials across the web including this link, How To Share Files and Printers Between Windows 7 and Vista - How-To Geek, and the closest I could get is the Vista accessing one of the 7's. All the PC's see each other, it's just when I try to access files over the network with the 7's I get a "You don't have permission to access...contact your network administrator" error. I'm the admin on both computers and I really can't get by this. It's so frustrating, I have been doing this for like 3 days already.Just a bit of info, I do have BitDefender 2011 on both the 7's and not the Vista. Although it might not make sense, I thought this might be the issue of why the Vista can access one of the 7's, I disabled the service through msconfig -> services and startup. Also disabled the firewall on all. It still didn't fix the problem.I actually figured it out. Although I enabled sharing with "everyone" and set permissions to full control, "everyone" was not showing up under group and users in the security tab. I just added that and voila.
We have a home network of 7 computers and have been using Win 7 Pro and Office 2010 Pro Plus together without error since about May until mid-summer when I began using MS Outlook. When I started using Outlook on my laptop it took over all user permissions on the network making me the administrator/owner. I don't know if Outlook is responsible. I am just making connections with the timing. Folders were shared that should not have been shared and the file system got mixed up. Files came up with strange attribute settings. It appears that my computer encrypted files that reside on other computers leaving other users unable to access them.
On the occasions that we have wiped my hard drive and others to fix the problem by starting over, everything seems fine until I start using MS Outlook again. It may be important to know that I am the only one that uses Outlook on the network. And, by the way, when I say start over, I mean that we wiped drives with various software such as DriveScrubber, and others, to no avail. Later, we used disk part and thought we had it licked, but NO. After that, we discovered how to delete the volume shadow copies, but it still comes back every time like a haunting or something.
We even bought brand new hard drives and installed them on all computers, bought a firewalled router, and carefully and meticulously reinstalled our software from disks making sure that everything was in order. We have isolated old files to eliminate the possibility of virus or malware. We have discussed the problem with the cable company and with Norton. I can accept the fact that I might have changed a setting unknowingly in the beginning, however, the problem will not go away after careful reinstallation and setup.
As far as I know I have full administrative privileges and UAC is off. I am the sole user and this is the only account. I tried to install a new version of VMware Stand Alone Converter. I right clicked and ran as administrator. It asked about removing old version and I checked OK. It runs and pops up a box at end with this fault:
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. This is the first software I've ever had a problem with. Is this a Windows problem or a VMware problem? Does VMware Workstation need admin privileges even though it's a separate program?
A little background and info: I support a number of people who for one reason or another need to be able to do things a local admin can do like install programs and start services (or more accurately allow a program they're running to start a service). All users are in the local administrators group. The local admin account is enabled (and renamed) so that we as administrators have local access when the machine comes in for service. The machines are joined to a AD domain so that we can control a lot of the security via GPO. Everything worked fine in XP.
We are getting a few different "you do not have permission" errors. When the user tries to run OpenAFS (which starts a service) they get a "you do not have permission" error. There is no way around this error.
Also, when the users try to run Lotus Notes they get a "you do not have permission" error. When we go into compatibility mode and check the "run as administrator" (or just right click and "run as administrator) it works fine, but they have to click the elevated privileges. The program was installed while logged in as the user.
Again, all users are members of the local administrators group. When the local admin account logs in all these programs run fine. This behavior started in Vista and I chalked it up to "vista sucks". Windows 7 so far seems to be great, except that like in vista, members of the local administrators group are not really local administrators. How do I make them true local administrators?
I use an old XP app (JetToolbar - available at JetToolBar - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com) and do not want to change but I cant make it work on Windows 7. The application installs and starts up just fine but it is not possible to drag icons/programs/files to the toolbar - I just get the 'no entry' sign (Circle with line through)However, the application runs fine when logged on to the hidden Administrator account. If I set up the application in the hidden Admin account and then log on as a normal admin user and run it from that account, the icons I set up are just not visible.So what do I have to change in my normal user account (member of administrators) to make this drag and drop work?I have tried 'Run as administrator' but that made no difference. Ive read about dropping to 'Run as User' apps from 'Run as Admin' apps but that's not the problem (at least problem occurs when app is run as user or run as admin)
I'm trying to move some files from my old (soon to be retired) XP Pc to my new Win 7 PC but am having problems?I am the only user on both machines and after checking user accounts on both machines I am described as Administrator. On the Win 7 machine I have UAC set at "Never Notify".I tried to map the C: drive on the Win 7 PC as drive Z: on the XP machine (I can see the Win 7 drive on the win XP Machine ). but it says "access is denied" When I do it the other way around I can map the Win XP drive on the Win 7 machine with no problems, but there are some files it won't let me copy over. It says:"You need permission to perform this action""You require permission from the computer's administrator to make changes to this file"
I have an Acer laptop which came with one user account, Acer, with the administrator right. When I tried to rename it to Administrator or administrator, I got an messages saying that user name has already existed

My son changed his account so that he is the administrator of our PC (smart kid), and now he has forgotten the password (smart ass). We can't log on as admin, and none of us can create our account as admin without his password. Does any know how we can remove him as an administrator?
I am being told by my computer that I am not the administrator and that my antivirus I have may not reach everywhere because I am not the administrator. How do I make it so all my programs run as administrator and make me the administrator?
I just installed Windows 7, Comodo, Firefox, and Itunes on a C300 64GB SSD, and noticed that I can't run programs as Administrator (even though I'm logged in as one) all the 'check boxes' are 'greyed' out. I've been reading forums and trying suggestions all day nothing works. I've created a new Admin account which didn't work and I've tried running FSUTIL from the command prompt, which also doesn't work (says I need Admin rights)... same with Net USER. I'll reinstall if I have to, but this would be my 4th time due to previous install errors..
That is, when want to format my hard drive, I (according to previous posts) right click on computer management, and select "Run as administrator" then open up the disk management and "format" will appear as an option in bold.It doesn't.Format is shaded no matter what.I was able to get rid of a nasty virus checker that disabled my machine by forcing safe mode and garbage canning the virus checker, but I wonder if it damaged my machine.Also, F8 doesn't work on this machine, it never has.
When I start up I recv. a msg stating that I am not logged on as an administrator. I then have to switch users at the start menu and then no more pop up and I do have administrative capabilities.I am not that computer savy but I dont think this is normal. Other than the guest account(which is off), I am the only user. I have been through the control panel inside out and upside down. I am listed as the administrator for sure, in a group, not a domain. I also turned off the password requirement.
I recently upgraded from Windows Vista Home Basic to Win7 Home Premium. Now, when I try to run any program that I hadn't run in Windows Vista, it gives me an error message saying "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this" or something on similar lines. I can't run any updates because of 'An unknown error'. I had upgraded with the help of a USB Flash drive. I also tried disabling digital signature checking using F8, but to no avail. I can't even re-enable AVG Anti-Virus, which i had disabled during my upgrade to speed up the process.
My New Laptop doesn't have two users only one..and that user is me.. I don't have administrative rights so therefore I can't create an administrator..to do simple tasks such as delete a program,, or open up msconfig.. These functions need administrative rights. How do I get these?
I am the administrator of a new laptop running windows 7 and this laptop will not let me install a software package. It states that I need to have administrator privileges. I have tried to set compatibility mode and choose run as administrator. All are greyed out. I can right click on the installer and run as administrator is not an option either. I am the administrator of the domain also, which should not make any difference. Why would one program not allow me to install it?
I have a few programs which require administrator privileges. I have tried running them normally... running them as administrator... I have even gone as far as to enable the admin account and then try running it. It is the same result every time... "You need to be administrator to run this program." I tried taking ownership of the programs, too. No luck.
I am dealing with more of an annoyance than a serious problem. When I start up I recv. a msg stating that I am not logged on as an administrator. I then have to switch users at the start menu and then no more pop up and I do have administrative capabilities.I am not that computer savy but I dont think this is normal. Other than the guest account(which is off), I am the only user. I have been through the control panel inside out and upside down. I am listed as the administrator for sure, in a group, not a domain. I also turned off the password requirement. I am confused as to why I have to take that step.
I have installed one of our product in a Windows 7 machine. Started the program by simple double click the shortcut in Desktop. Then from the program while trying to take print (by clicking on command button which sends print commands into printer) it fails. Then I executed the program from a command prompt after opened the command prompt as 'Administrator', then the print works. How can we give the print and other related things to be enable/can set the permissions if we execute the program by simply double click the short cut key?
Running Windows 7 64bit on a HP Pavlion with i7 processor.I do have a administrator account on this PC, but recently I have to select "Run as Administrator" to make some programs work.for instance Visual studio 2010 is failing to start up when I simply run it. also windows live mail give errors (black screens) if I try to run it normally.Nothing new installed lately only some dozen recomended window upgrades.
Often I am told that I need to be an Adminisrator to do something when using Windows 7. Is there a way to become a Adminisrator when I boot into Windows, and be a Adminisrator all the time I'm using Windows 7? Or is there a way of disabling the feature that pops up the message telling me that I need to be an Adminisrator to do something when using Windowd 7?
