Bypass UAC for programs running without Admin privileges


Due problems on permissions, some programs will try escalating privileges to run with administrative privileges, even if they don’t really have to.

We have users that don’t have admin privileges, and in order to bypass the need of making them local admins, we use the following cmd:


Correct the path of the software to run as an admin:

cmd /min /C "set __COMPAT_LAYER=RUNASINVOKER && start "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\PlasmaCAM\PlasmaCAM.exe"

Create a file ‘plasma.cmd’, and create a shortcut for the cmd file.
