How to Run Windows Batch Script as Administrator by Default?
I have a batch script that needs to execute as administrator. Using "Run as administrator" using the in the pop-up menu works, but the batch file is meant for drag-and-dropping folder onto. When a folder is dropped onto it, it is executed, but without the administrator privilege. Is there a way to make it execute as administrator?
Here is a partial work-around that works in "some" cases, but not others...
1. Create a Windows shortcut for the batch script.
Now your script will always execute with as administrator. For your purpose, this trick will work for anything you drag-and-drop onto it, where the object path does not include a space. But if your object path contains one or more spaces, the operation will fail. This problem seems to be a bug at the Windows OS level, so you can't fix it in your script. The problem issue never gets to your script.
Good luck. Let us know if this trick works for you.
