I use a batch file to run a powershell script for my non-Tech co-workers.
I need to run this script with alt creds so it will install a piece of software.
I know its not best but I dont care if the password is in clear text in the script.
any help would be greatly appreciated!
hears my batch file to kick off the ps script:
I was looking to use this in my powershell script to use the alt creds
$Username = "PC01\user1" $Password = 'P@ssword' $PasswordSS = ConvertTo-SecureString -String $Password -AsPlainText -Force $Creds = New-Object -Typename System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -Argumentlist $Username,$PasswordSS Start-Process powershell.exe -Credential $Creds -NoNewWindow -ArgumentList "Start-Process powershell.exe -Verb runAs" #enter code here
It does open a new admin window but executes the code in the cmd.exe that is opened by the batch file.
