Running batch script as administrator but entering non admin user password crashes the script RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All 
    I have written a windows batch script that needs administrative privilege to function commands within the script. So when I run the script with "Run as administrator" and provide administrator credentials the script goes fine. 

    However when a user runs the script with "Run as administrator" and provide non admin I mean normal user password the script crashes and it hangs up the computer which requires PC restart to get back normal state!!!

    Could anyone please help giving ideas?

  • Sorry but this is not a support forum for system problems.  You cannot elevate a non-admin account.  Call MS Support for assistance with you issue.

  • Well, I consider it is scripting forum :) individual may have ideas.

    I am not trying elevate non-admin account. End user may not have admin account and they are always intuitive put some other user. My question is login prompt should bounce back if user is non-admin to enter correct admin user again !!!

  • It is a system error and cannot be resolved via a script.  Any user can ask to elevate anything.  The error should never occur.  Troubleshoot and fix the system.
