Windows: Start a cmd.exe with system rights

Hi,

since Windows 2008 and Windows Vista it is no more possible to start a cmd.exe with system rights by using the (Task)Scheduler.

But it’s also possible. Use psexec from sysinternals instead.

If you want to get a cmd.exe (or some other executable) with NT Authority\Local System rights open a cmd.exe shell with Administrative permission. Start psexec with the following options


D:\Tools\sys> psexec.exe -s -i -d c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe

This will open cmd shell in a separate window.
