I have a process which runs a batch file.

But this batch file need admin rights for doing its tasks.

I have the following code for it:
strtProcess = New Process
strtProcess.StartInfo.FileName = Application.StartupPath + "\extractor.bat"
strtProcess.StartInfo.Verb = "runas"
strtProcess.StartInfo.Arguments = ""
strtProcess.StartInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Normal
strtProcess.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = True


But I want to show the output of the process in a richtextbox.

Is there any method by which I can do both tasks i.e Run the File as ADMIN & show the output in RichTextBox?

THANKS IN ADVANCE

Not work for Redirect IO http://kiquenet.wordpress.com/2014/08/22/uac-run-as-administrator-elevated-process/

Here's one way:

Process process = new Process();
ProcessStartInfo info = new ProcessStartInfo{FileName = "notepad",
                                             UserName = "admin",
                                             Domain = "",
                                             Password = "myAdminPassword",
                                             UseShellExecute = false,
                                             RedirectStandardOutput = true,
                                             RedirectStandardError = true
                                            };
process.Start(info);


You can also set the Process.Verb property to "runas", and go from there.

But how do I get to know the admin user name and password from vb.net??

You can't. I assumed you had an admin password. Looks like you're going to have to use the Process.Verb approach.
