Subject: Explorer Context Menu
Edit:
Current release candidate 1.2.1.3 is here:
http://forum.kay-bruns.de/post/4076

Right-click menu:

'Run as Administrator' - Microsoft Windows default
'Start as Administrator' - SuRun program

Regarding the future release of v1.2.1.3 of SuRun, I was wondering if you could rename the explorer context menu wording from 'Start as Administrator' to 'SuRun as Administrator'.

This would avoid any confusion with the Microsoft Windows 'Run as Administrator'.

I have users who always get the two confused.

As always, thank you. And thank you for SuRun.

Regards.

Hi,

I made a private Beta 1 for SuRun 1.2.1.3 earlier this year.

Here's the change log:

SuRun 1.2.1.3b1 - 2017-03-11
  • NEW: SuRun Executables are digitally signed
  • CHG: Changed SuRun's Context Menu Strings from "<...>" to "SuRun: <...>"
  • FIX: Members of "Power Users" and "Backup Opeators" could not use SuRun before
  • FIX: Bug in IAT-Hooks made Internet Explorer Crash on Windows 10

I'm on the "Admin moderated restricted SuRunner" feature right now.
Hope to get SuRun 1.2.1.3 done this year   :blush:  ;-)

First try at moderated restricted SuRunners:

SuRun 1.2.1.3b2 - 2017-08-09
  • NEW: Moderated Restricted Surunners. ("User can only run predefined programs with elevated rights")
If a restricted SuRunner tries to run a non validated Programm with elevated rights, SuRun will now ask for Administrator credentials to launch the program elevated in the user's context.
  • FIX: Fixed Spanish Resources

BTW: Nobody in Spain apparently ever used SuRun  ;-)

Excellent feature. Thank you.

Hello,

v1.2.1.3b2

1. Right-click on the installer executable file
2. Select 'SuRun: Start as Administrator'
3. Type in the admin password
User:        PCName\Administrator
Password: password
4. Click the check box 'Automagically run this program with elevated rights'
5. Click OK

My question is when the 'Automagically run this program with elevated rights' check box is ticked, where does SuRun save the elevated rights settings? I looked and could not find any saved settings.

Thank you.

SuRun stores all user specific settings in HKLM\Security\SuRun.
To see entries in this tree you probably need to run "surun /runas /user system regedit"

SuRun 1.2.1.3b3 - 2017-08-20
  • NEW: SuRun detects a renamed computer and imports user's settings
  • FIX: User Bitmaps for Domain Users were not shown

SuRun Stores settings for users in HKLM\Security\SuRun\<ComputerName>\<UserName>.

If the computer name was changed, SuRun's settings were apparently lost.

Starting with 1.2.3.1b3, SuRun checks the current computer name against the last seen computer name and changes the registry tree accordingly.

Thank you. I was not aware of this SuRun key in the registry. So when the 'Automagically run this program with elevated rights' check box is ticked, it saves the setting here: HKLM\Security\SuRun.
