Title: Challenge: Run as Administrator
Post by: aw27 on March 14, 2019, 01:27:55 AM
Without Manifest, without changing compatibility settings, without right clicking and select Run as Administrator or similar ways, how to run my program as Administrator?

Anyone?

Very good JJ!
Only the guy that says "hi admin" is not the administrator.  :(

Yep, you are right :P

Code: [Select]
include \masm32\include\masm32rt.inc

.code
start:
  invoke GetCommandLine
  xchg eax, ebx
  .if sdword ptr find$(1, ebx, "-A")>0
MsgBox 0, "I am the admin, really", "Hi", MB_OK
  .else
invoke ShellExecute, 0, chr$("runas"), ebx, chr$("-A"), 0, 0
  .endif
  exit
end start
