Windows built-in Run-As command allows you to launch a program as a different user account than the one currently active, However, runas.exe cannot be fully automated as it requires that the user typein the password for the alternate account. RunAsTool is portable freeware which allows standard users to run a specific program with administrator privileges without the need to enter the administrator password. This allows you to provide standard (non-admin) users with access to programs that require admin rights.
Under a restricted account, some programs may not run correctly due to missing administrator rights, therefore many users are given administrator accounts, making the system more vulnerable to malware, viruses and other security risks. With RunAsTool, you can correct this.
Being portable, RunAsTool does not require installation, allowing you to drop the program anywhere on the hard disk and run it directly. You can also copy RunAsTool to a USB flash drive or similar external storage unit, and run it on any computer. You can carry RunAsTool with you whenever youre on the move.
The login information for the application like username and password are read from an encrypted file You dont have to worry about your Admin Password.
