Auto launching IE in Vista with Admin authority RRS feed

  • Question

  • To make a long story short, we have an application that automatically launches a browser window using this html code.

    <html><head><title>Starting Inventory Services</title></head>
    <body onLoad="javascript:this.document.InventoryServices.submit()">

    <form name="InventoryServices"
    <input type=hidden name=requestType value="br">
    <input type=submit name=button value="Launch Inventory Services">
    <input type=hidden name=retrieve value="ALL" >
    <input type=hidden name=mrdata value="NO" >


    The IE browser window is opened and the user is taken to the url specified in the code.  The user is allowed to log into a separate application.  Within this separate application is a Java applet that will automatically save a file to the users local machine in a pretermined directory

    The problem is using Windows Vista and IE7, the IE browser is launched as normal, rather than as an admin.  Therefore the java applet is not allowed to save the file to the predetermined location on the users machine.  Is there anyway to launch the IE window using the code above with admin authority?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
