Dear All,

I have a very specific requirement.
My application will have only one exe and I need to create a shortcut for it.

And the shortcut should run in SYSTEM account.

As per my understanding, whenever a user launches a shortcut, it will launch in user context, that means taking the previlages of the user who is logged in. If administartor then admin privilage, if user then user previlage.

I am not sure if we can make a shortcut to lauch in SYSTEM account.
Any information on this will be of great help.

Thanks in advance.

There is no way that I am aware of to run a program as the SYSTEM account. It would not be recommended practice to do so anyway, why do you need to do it?
