    How to use RunAs without password prompt?


    Hi!

    I tried to use RunAs to start and program as admin.
    After entering this command:

    RunAs.exe /user:Administrator "regedit.exe"

    it shows prompt to enter password.

    Is possible to override password prompt by any way?
    Or enter password in command?

    Thank you for help.
    Miro

    :)

  2. runas command for username with spaces

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the issue that you are currently facing, we will try the best we can to resolve your issue.

    Since this command may run under both elevated and non-elevated privileges. I would suggest you do a SFC Scan and see if everything is working properly in your system.

    Follow the steps to run the System File Checker

    • On the Search bar type “cmd” and click ctrl + shift + Enter to open the Elevated Command Prompt. (If prompted for a password, type the password and click Allow)
    • Type “sfc /scannow” and hit Enter.
    • Exit Command Prompt.
    For more information about SFC Scan click on the link below:

    Hope the information helps. Please let us know if the issue persist and we will be happy to assist you further.

  3. Windows 10 still accepting my old password at logon

    If you have changed your password through live.com (aka outlook.com) and it isn't synchronized with your local Windows account, do the following:

    • Open a command prompt and type:
      runas /u:[my account]@outlook.com cmd.exe
      *replace [my account] here with your own username - change @outlook.com to whatever domain your MS account uses
    • Type your new MS account password and hit Enter

    The above steps will synchronize your Microsoft password to your local machine. This worked for me as I had the same issue reported here.
