Run an application as administrator from uipath

hello everyone, I just want to know that if we want to start an application as an administrator. what are the steps to be followed?

I already tried running uipath as administrator but it is not able to click in UAC window.
Is there any way to do this?

Thanks in advance


Same question - is there any solutions for that?

I simply navigated to the .exe file in the explorer, pressed SHIFT+F10 and clicked on “Run as administrator”.
It is an odd way, but it works.
Kind regards

try to run with start process activity by creating a batch file. you need to use command prompt for this.

Create Shortcut for the application you want to run, Put that in your project folder. Right click on shortcut and in advanced properties, Mark it as as run as administrator. Works like a charm.

Try modifying the “User Account Settings>Choose when to be notified about changes to your computer” to the lower level
