Runas In Windows 7


Scripts or commands using “runas” that worked in Windows Vista (or earlier) may fail under Windows 7 with an error message similar to the following:

RUNAS ERROR: Unable to run - mmc 740: The requested operation requires elevation.

This problem can be resolved by adding the “runas” command switch ”/netonly” as in the following example:

runas /netonly /user:iwunet\ program.exe
