How to run program as admin

If the runas service is running on the windows system. Shift + right click the executable. Run as will appear as an option. Select runas and put in the proper login info.

What about in IE7?

by ericdls In reply to Thanks

Hi guys, our installers are located in the network shared and we usually use the RUN-AS command in IE6 to browse through the restricted folders as admins. However, when we migrated to IE7, it is opening up a new windows explorer browser separately. Thus, the admin rights do not work. Is there any work around?

Appreciate all the help...

Don't use the browser at all.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to What about in IE7?

Do a Windows key+E to open Explorer outside of IE. Create either mapped drive or a Network Place pointing to the share. Then go to the share, right-click the app, and click Run As.

Thanks Palmetto. This is a callcenter environment and most users only have "User" rights in their PCs. As a result, the installers located at the shared folder are restricted, they dont even have the rights to do "List Folder Contents". What I want to do is to open up a windows explorer with Admin access to the folder itself and not the app alone. If I use Run-As on the app itself, there are some dependent files that might work.

You can map a drive to the share using your admin credentials and disconnect it when you're done.
