Trigger UAC to Ensure Scripts are run As Administrator in Windows 7

Written by SPK Blog Post
Published on April 10, 2014
I wanted to post this solution since we run into this problem all the time:

Often, our .bat scripts include making registry changes or copying files which require Administrative access. This code will cause the .bat file to trigger a UAC prompt before running AsAdministrator — allowing us to make those registry changes instead of getting permission errors.

Be careful, though – make sure you map network drives or make environment changes at the end of the file; relaunching a file as Administrator means you will not have the same Environment or Map Drives as the User in Windows 8.
