    Running scripts with elevated permissions

    Hi folks,

    wondering if anyone here can help me out.

    I have a script which runs when connecting to our vpn however it fails to set routes due to the lack of elevated permissions. When UAC is completely disabled (using the registry) the script works perfectly however certain windows 8 features don't work, such as the metro apps.

    Basically I'm looking for a way to keep UAC enabled and automaically run the connection script with elevated permissions automatically, fully scripted or some sort of a work around to automatically set the routes when connected to VPN.

Hi there I don't want to use a 3rd party application - but it would seem to me if one could start ANY standard application immediately a user logs in then you'd get to the desktop immediately on boot without relying on Start8 or any of these other work arounds. You could start say a "Dummy"...
