VBS: Defining Impersonate Level as admin

P: 9
I am trying to use the following VBS (which I've found on BYTES) to start an aplication on remote PC.
The issue is that I need to start it as an ADMIN (I have the passwords & login).

How shall I modify the impersonationlevel to:
Login as ADMIN @ remote PC (other profile than my current one on the Controlling PC)??

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. A = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationlevel=impersonate}!\\\root\cimv2:Win32_Process").Create("C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\Winword.exe", Null, Null, iProcID)

Thanks for help!

Just add your network account as an admin on the remote PC.

What I understood:

Control PC: I have to be logged as a user with Administrative Rights

Remotely Controlled PC: My user ( one with which I am logged with @ Control PC must be actually a domain admin, to be able to log as an admin @ Remotely Controlled PC) has to be an admin - and current user of the OS system might be just a regular one?

Please let me know if I understood you well :)

You don't have to be an admin on the control PC, you just have to be an admin on the remote PC.
