Summary0002026: Relaunch control center as privileged process on Windows
DescriptionThe symcc Control Center runs without the privilege to start/stop and install/uninstall the service. Even when the user is a local admin, Windows gives the process the lowest privilege it thinks is needed. To get the User Account Control (UAC) pop-up to escalate privilege, we need to run the process again with ShellExecute and the "runas" verb. (The "runas" command line utility is similar, but prompts for a password instead of invoking the UAC.)
Additional InformationThis issue will only cover privilege escalation on Windows, but we can do something similar for Unix and MacOS. IZPack-util includes a MacOS X executable that can escalate privilege that we might use. Unix has sudo, gksudo, and pkexec, and other variants that we could call. See
