exampleHello, I have a .bat file that I need the bot to run but as administrator, as opposed to just straight opening the file (screen shot included of what I need). Is there a parameter I can use in the application: open program/file command that will do this?

I think with AA command it will not possible, instead edit this bat script to always open as admin, follow this article:

You may also try the option below when running the bot:

Hi! Thank you for your response! I had actually found that same post yesterday afternoon! This response worked for me:

For your second suggestion, the bot always runs as admin in my case but when opening a bat file you have 2 options: 'Open' and 'Run as administrator'. Even as an admin if I simply 'Open', I still get an 'access denied' error on some of the actions.
