User Interaction on Scripts

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any experience or success with having end users initiate or interact with scripts? 

I've used wscript.shell.popup to send messages as part of the script. Ideally it would be nice to put a shortcut on the desktop that they could run and it would start the Automate script. 

I used Automate to put a powershell script and a shortcut to it on the computer but the end user needed elevated permissions to do the update in the powershell script.

I have used the following embeded in my scripts to elevate in the case of UAC. Maybe it will help you.




#This Section elevates to admin

function Test-Admin {
  $currentUser = New-Object Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal $([Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent())

if ((Test-Admin) -eq $false)  {
    if ($elevated) 
        # tried to elevate, did not work, aborting
    else {
        Start-Process powershell.exe -Verb RunAs -ArgumentList ('-noprofile -noexit -file "{0}" -elevated' -f ($myinvocation.MyCommand.Definition))


'running with full privileges'
