I have a scenerio where I have to allow normal users on 3 tablets (windows 7) to enable and disable the wireless adaptor.

They do not have a keyboard, except for the touch screen.

This is only for testing, so it is temporary.

I have the netsh command in a batch which will either turn off of turn on the adaptor. Problem is that these users cannot have admin rights to run the batch. I can select 'run as administrator' as a property, but that still prompts for a password.

Is there a way to allow the netsh batch file to run through a local security policy, just for now?

If so, where should I focus?

Hi -
Can you create "Guest Accounts" for these people, this way they may not need your main password to log on -

Thank You -

The batch file is a 'netsh' command that disables or enables the Wirless adaptor. Whether they are logged in as Guest or their own login, they need to run the script....but can't because they do not have admin priveledges.

I need a way for them to run this script (run as admin) without having to put in an admin password and not telling them or displaying the admin credentials or even not having the password in a file if I can help it.

Hi Sys Tech Guy,

Here is a way to create a elevated program shortcut for Standard Users I found on Windows Seven Forum Elevated Program Shortcut for standard User

Never tried it but looks promising.

Hope it helps
