in reply to Win32::Process::Create with elevated privileges on Windows 7

your problem is with "windows 7 UAC enabled". The fact is you can have the admin rights its just windows 7 needs to know "Windows Explorer" is open so UAC can link up with your admin rights to make it run.

But there are big problems with using UAC in windows 7 with Perl and one thing is if your program spits out a file it made and your in another folder with "Windows Explorer" the file will be copy'ed to the folder your currently viewing instead.

Pure Fact: Perl works best on *nix systems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If find it ironic that the same people who espouse that the unix shells (which one?) is what makes *nix superior to Windows, also tend to be the ones that claim that Perl works best on *nix.

    Ironic because Perl's original raison d'etre was to work around the complexities and deficiencies of those *nix shells.

    Which means that if the Windows shells are even more limited than the *nix ones, Perl is even more useful there.
