Hey all,

So following the regedit way, I'm trying to get OpenVPN to run as admin automatically. The entry changes the .exe to run as admin under compatibility but it does not work as needed.

When running it I get - The requested operation requires elevation (this is to change some routing through windows to properly connect to our network).

When I right click run as admin it works properly. Also works as needed when I physically add the run as admin through the properties -> compatibility.

Odd yes?

The point of getting it through regedit is I'm going to have the changes done through a .bat script so users in my office just run the script and they don't have to worry about having to right click to run or change the properties of the .exe themselves.

Any ideas?

Hello eferris, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This has happened to another user as well, and the solution was to add the registry entries to both HCU and HKLM locations in the registry. Hopefully it will work for you as well.

(Option 3): Compatibility Mode

Hello Ardy,

Sure. You could enable and log on to the built-in Administrator account. Anything you run in this account will run as administratror (elevated). It's not recommended to do though for security reasons.

Run as Administrator

I want to logon as standard user and run my system board application
as administrator on Windows 7.
Earlier i used the tool Cpau. On Windows 7 i use Runasrob.
Is there a way to do this with Windows dashboard tools?

Hello Brian, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You should be able to use the method in the tutorial below to do so. You'll have to use the built-in Administrator account to be able to set the shortcut up.

Elevated Program Shortcut - Create for Standard User

Hope this helps,
Shawn
