I am trying to get a simple batch script to run as administrator.
cd c:\program files\microsoft office\office14
cscript ospp.vbs /act
I have this saved in a bat file and it copies to the temp directory but does not run as administrator. Any suggestions?
First, keep in mind that vbs files aren't executable. If you are calling them from a batch script I'd recommend calling the interpreter directly so you can be 100% certain which one it will use, cscript.exe or wscript.exe.
To answer your actual question, I have started using hstart.exe to launch executables to ensure they request elevated permissions. I've had significantly more luck with this than about any other method I've tried.
I in no way work for that company, but have used it to get powershell scripts to work among other many other things.
