allow toolbox items to be run elevated, even when logged on user has no permissions, by invoking UAC

ATM shortcuts in toolbox are run with the logged on users account, even when using the `run elevated' option

Hi Stefan, 

What version of Control do you have? Are you on-prem or cloud? 



hi caitlin,

we're on cloud. Currently actually only on trial. But if it comes down to me, we're buying ;)

instance is ScreenConnect_20.7.29305.7496_Release

info from Reid Bodford:

>>The problem you are seeing is because you are not actually launching an app from the Toolbox but, rather, just executing a shortcut to launch an application installed on the guest machine. Were you to launch an actual application that is stored in the Toolbox and the logged on user was not an administrator, then you would be presented with a UAC prompt for credentials.<<

so its about shortcut files (.lnk)
