Running task manager under non administrator users

Recommended Posts

am12348    0

Hello to all,

In the organization I'm working with, there are users, that don't have administrator's permissions.

I was asked to write a batch that displays the task manager in any workstation.

The command for displaying the task manager is relatively simple: taskmgr

If the batch runs under an administrator user, the task manager is displayed.

However if I try to run it under a non administrator user, a message concerning to

permissions is displayed.

My question is , if there is a way to impersonate the command in the batch, namely running

the command as an administrator?

Thank you in advance,

Amos

I've tried: runas /user:Administrator taskmgr.

However I'm required to type the administrator's

password. I need that the batch will be run

automatically without intervention. Namely I'm

looking for a way to store the administrator's

password in the command/batch.

Thank you,

Amos

Andre, I can't find any working example that shows passing the administrator password with the batch. I only found posts by folks that say they can't get it to work. Can you elaborate or provide a link? Thanks in advance.

Cheers and Regards
