I am Creating a GUI Application in PowerShell

But i am Dealing with Group Policy so All Hives in HKLM Needs Admin Privillige

i wrote a code that error is shown when the App is not running as Admin

But i want it when a user double click it even he didn't click on " Run As Admin " That UAC Appears and Ask him to

run it as Admin , so i don't bother Users with Error Appears asking him to run as Admin

so what should i do ?

Thanks in Advance ,

I have not tested this myself, but have a look at the Re-launch Powershell Script Elevated Script Center script

if you use Sapien Studio, when you build the program you can set it with an elevated manifest

i reed it but as i know it will run just if the User Run Ps1 Script Because it depending on "$MyInvocation.ScriptName "
i think it will not work if it converted to Exe But i will Try and i Hope It works
,,
i wrote the above but before click submit i trtied to use the Script and it didn't work even with Ps1

So Can you Tell Me How To do that

My approach to something similar is to create a shortcut to launch the script/application. Then in the shortcut properties you can set it to always launch elevated.
