Is it possible to execute X command with Administrative privilages

Hi,

I am trying to run a DOS command through SAS. When I run this specific command in CMD as administrator it gives desired output. But if I run it simply by double clicking on it, it doesn't work. As an example: check the following command:

tasklist /FI "Imagename eq conhost.exe" /FI "username eq system"

when I run this from CMD as administrator I get 1 task in output. But if I run the same command as a simple user it replys that Info: No tasks are running which match the specified criteria.

Basically this is a privilage issue and an ordinary user doesn't have access to processes run by other users (or in this case system).

Now the question is, if I want to get this result through SAS, then How should I do it?  Is it possible to run CMD from SAS with administrative privilages.

Thanks in advance for your efforts.

Regards,

Saugata Mukherjee.

What happens if you run SAS as administrator?

Looks like there are options to specify /U[user name] and /P[assword].
