Logging into IE7 to use it to run programs as an admin RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    With IE6 I could run it as an admin  (use the run as a diffrent user) and be able to run programs and use the Control Panel. With IE7, it opens up a new window with the same rights that I have in my network login and I need local admin rights.  I would just run the program that I need as an admin but I can’t do this with Control Panel. How can I accomplish this?

    Hi marcus1555, after checking the issue, it seems this is a Windows XP related issue. As this forum focuses on Windows Vista specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to Windows XP forum via the link:

  • Thats what I am talking about but it still opens a new window when I type in a local computer adddress like C:\ or Control Panel and it still has the same rights as my network login.

  • I think "runas" is a tool that should solve this problem. At the moment I don´t have another idea.

     

    runas /user:userXYZ@DOMAIN "mmc.exe"

     

    This mmc will be run with the rights of userXYZ.

     

    When there is another way Im interested, too.
