Hi Experts,

I want to run "netsh" command on windows 7 with some parameters. It requires administrator privileges. This can be achieved either by launching "cmd"as an administrator.
But I want run "netsh" command as Runtime.getRuntime.exec("cmd /c netsh"); with administrator privileges.

Please guide me to achieve this.

Thanks,
Akki

Instead of using cmd, use runas. Run runas /? to see the options.
