Running as Administrator

When running a program as "Administrator" several aspects of the user environment changes.
  • The current directory
  • The Temp directory
  • Mapped drives
Try running a program as Administrator that interacts with a mapped drive and see what I mean.

When "using" Tech'sToolbox, If you create a control that points to a program or script on a mapped drive, when Toolbox "runs" that control, it won't find it if you are running Toolbox as Administrator, which you should it run as Administrator when trying to automate the installation of programs to avoid the constant nagging of UAC " Do you want (some program) to make changes to your computer?"
