Editors' review

Raise My Rights is a free program that is supposed to give users administrator access to most applications. But thanks to an overall lack of direction, the only thing that this program raised was our level of frustration with its poor performance.

The program has an extremely vague user interface. It requires that you enter the account details for creating a shortcut. We entered our username and domain info, but once we got to the password part, we weren't sure what to enter. The program's Help feature merely gives you copyright information, so it was trial and error for the rest of our tests. We browsed for the application to which we wanted to gain administrator access, but once we clicked the OK button, it was error message after error message from that point on.

If you're looking to gain administrator access, we recommend that you save yourself the time and frustration of dealing with this dud of a program.

    "Works fine if used correctly"

    Version: Raise My Rights 1.4.3437

    Pros

    easy to use.

    Cons

    could potentially be a security exploit.

    Summary

    Disappointed with CNET's review. It was very reductionist and simple.

    This program utilizes the "run as" feature in windows to allow a user with restricted access to run a program with administrator privileges. As such YOU NEED someone with ADMINISTRATOR PRIVILEGES on the computer. If your are not the administrative user on the computer the username/password fields are useless to you.

    TO SETUP THE PROGRAM:
    1.enter the username of the computer admin.
    2.enter the appropriate domain info
    3.enter the administrator password
    4. select the program you want to run.
    A shortcut with automatic "run as" functionality will be created.
    you will now be able to run the program as a restricted user.
