How can I run Automation Anywhere process as Admin?

I'm building a bot and I need it to perform some actions in an application that only starts as admin - if I turn this option off, it won't work -, but it doesn't work at all. I've been scrolling through the forum and I found many questions about it (2 years ago questions) but none of the answers are working.

Is there any current method or action that actually solves this whole problem of being unable to perform actions in an application that has started as admin?


I appreciate every answer here. Thank you! 🙂

Hello @Vinícius Lacerda​ ,


This is Dhwanit Parekh from Automation Anywhere Technical Support Team.


While running the bot, please use highlighted check box to launch it with admin privileges.

Note that, For this to work, the user which is logging into Windows machine while the bot is executed must have admin rights on the runner machine.


Run with Admin Privileges
