I have an application that will not stay open unless it is run through command prompt as an administrator.  I have found a way to add a shortcut to my desktop in order to open it (Administrator: Elevated Command Prompt) but not sure how to programically open this program.  Does anyone have a quick and easy solution to this?  I would like to open the Administrator: Elevated Command Prompt and then start writing my commands. 

Thanks!!

You need the extension of the shortcut "Elevated Command Prompt.XX" and also be sure of the path, go to properties/general in the shortcut

Here are my properties, I changed my program to this and the command prompt closes immediatly and doesn't open desktop shortcut (which is technically a command prompt shortcut with administrator rights that I made, I followed:

I know it should be something easy that I am missing again but I am stumped.....

That worked exactly how I asked but am finding out that is not what I need.  It opens the program but I want to programmically run commands on the Elevated Command Prompt.  Any ideas on how to do this?  I am trying to do this all programmically so that the user only has to run LabVIEW and not actually type anything into the command prompt.  An example of commands that I want to run in the Elevated Command Prompt are:

cd /

cd "Program Files (x86)"

 

and other commands.  The reason that I can't use a regular command prompt is that the program will only run out of one with Administrative rights, and that is why I am trying to use the Elevated shortcut because it has administrative priveledges saved in the shortcut. 

 

Any suggestions?
