How can I run a program from the command line as an administrator. I'm looking for a command line equivalent to right-clicking on the program icon and choosing "Run as Administrator".

Click the start orb, All Programs, Accessories, Right Click on the Command Prompt Icon and choose run as Administrator.

Now you have a command Prompt running as Administrator and Programs launched from there are launched as administrator rights.

Good Luck
