Request UAC elevation at runtime

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Security' started by John Daintree, Sep 24, 2009.

  1. Hello all,

    I have an application that may, depending on user actions, require
    elevation.

    Is it possible, at runtime, from within the program, to request elevation?

    So the sequence would be:

    1) Start program (not elevated)
    2) User performs actions (as non-admin)
    3) User trys to perform action that will require admin privileges
    4) Program prompts user for elevation
    5) Program performs action with admin privileges
    6) Program de-elevates
    7) User performs actions (as non-admin)
    8) Program exits.

    Thanks in advance,
    john
