RunAs within VBScript

RunAs within VBScript

RunAs within VBScript

Hi, I have a VBScript that will install software on users machines based on a registry check. One of the pieces of software it needs to install is .net framework. Now a lot of the machines users are not local admins of their machine, how can I run this line of the script with runas without the need to pass credentials through:-

if getDotNetVer()<4.7 then showBanner:oshell.run localCopy(runFile(1)),showApp,True:wscript.sleep 3000

The runFile(1) command runs the .net Framework install from the required installation folder.

Any help would be appreciated.

RE: RunAs within VBScript

If you want a VBScript to run a program using RunAs DOS command, go straight to the bottom of the blog. If you want to read the build-up for the final product, keep reading. Time to time I came across I wanted to run a script or program as administrative privileges. The few needs are like, Install a program or do something on client machines via login script, Run a program using a different account
