Win7 "Run as Administrator" in Login?

I have a login script that runs some ROUTE ADD commands. Works fine in XP but in Win7 or Vista those must be done with "Run As Administrator". Any way to invoke that in a login script?

Have you tried using the runas command?

Don't believe RunAs will ever work for you in a Novell login script since it requires elevation (provided you have UAC turned on). If you are using UAC and you need to perform a ROUTE ADD, you'll either need to use a script as applied by group policy to the computer (not user), or use ZCM.

Seems like ZCM would be the easiest way to perform this using the SYSTEM user.

You could create an LNK file and call that from the logon script.
Of course users will be prompted if UAC is enabled.

If you don't have a tool such as ZCM, I would recommend turning UAC off
to make some type of central mgmt easier.
