    I'm not sure if this is the right formum to ask this on but here goes.
    I've got an app that I update on client systems with a script. The
    script unregisters dll's, then overwrites them, then registers the new
    ones. On Vista, the app fails with "cannot create active X object"
    which means the dll's are not registered properly.
    So I went to the Run form and tried to manually register one of them.
    I receive an error. So I went to a command prompt, told it to run as
    Admin, and was succesfull in registering the dll.
    How do you get into Admin mode in a script. I cannot go to every Vista
    computer and manually register 12 dll's. I must be able to automate it.
    Thanks for any advice.

    I found the answer so I thought I would share it with you.
    If I have my users turn off User Account Control (UAC), the script
    driven updates will register properly.
    It is located on one of the pages for managing user accounts.
    It's probably a good idea to turn it off with any installation or
    update, then turn it back on.
