    Hello all,

    I know of the basic way to make a program run as an admin (rightclick, Properties -> Compatibility - > Run this program as an administrator)

    Prob I have found out, If I put the .exe on another site for someone to download, when they download it to their PC, or if I just simply move the .EXE to another part of the PC, the admin rights are taken off.

    If there a way to keep the "Always run as an administrator" on there at all times, can you please tell me?

    probably have to make a batch file adding:-

    runas /user:Administrator Example1.exe

    name it the same as the exe and run that

    simplest

    You can add manifest file beside it

    save as ProgramName.exe.manifest
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
    <assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
    <assemblyIdentity version="1.0.0.0" processorArchitecture="*" name="abc" type="win32"></assemblyIdentity>
    <description>abc</description>
    <dependency>
    <dependentAssembly>
    <assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls" version="6.0.0.0" processorArchitecture="*" publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df" language="*"></assemblyIdentity>
    </dependentAssembly>
    </dependency>
    <trustInfo xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">

    <requestedExecutionLevel level="requireAdministrator" uiAccess="false"></requestedExecutionLevel>
    </requestedPrivileges>
    </security>
    </trustInfo>
    <compatibility xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:compatibility.v1">
