Giving Installation Executables Administrator Rights
I've found a very cool freeware tool called "SteelSonic Run-As". It allows you to create standalone .exe files with administrative permissions. This .exe file allows computers to run as a standard user with admin privileges. The best thing is that can you do this without giving the computer user any administrator privileges.
Sometimes you need to install or execute programs without provide administrator rights to anyone. Imagine that you need to install some program without having access to the high level tools that would normally help you do this job?
For example, you can install Microsoft Office only using this tool by simply creating a .exe program that points to the setup stored on a software storage server and recording the admin/password information. After setting things up, you send this .exe program to the end user and he will be able to run this program without asking anyone to (with administrator priviliges) to perform the installation.
Moreover, "Steel Run-As" supports file CRC checking. The CRC (or cyclic redundancy check) produces a fixed size checksum and is usually used to detect errors after transmission or storage. Using the CRC also prevents the end user from renaming the target file.
Steel Run-As has a Freeware license for all private and corporate users.
How to Use
