hi,
i have had a good search around but cant find an answer so sorry if its already been asked.

Win XPSP2

Im trying to figure out how to set shortcuts on a limited account to run as admin, yea i can right click on the shortcut and "run as" but it wont remember what i set it to? iv looked on the net and found some info that said if i right click on shortcut and go to properties/advanced i should get an option to run as admin but i dont i get an option to run with different credentials which just makes the "run as" window popup when i run the shortcut but still is not what i want. so how do i make a shortcut on limited acc always run as admin without having to put in my PW each time?

thx for any help.

you can either make a batch file that will run the target program as an admin or you could make a VBscript that does the same thing

or you could use a program called CPAU (http://www.joeware.n.../cpau/index.htm) which i've used a lot

out of the 3 options i just listed CPAU seems to be the most secure...when you follow their process of creating a CPAU job it encrypts the admin username and password into the job file...you can set up a runas batch that will save the credentials of the admin account without the user knowing the password...but certain user profile modifications can cause it to loose this information
