iam new in writing codes with python and i was wondering can you run a cmd command like
“manage-bde -lock d: -forcedismount” or “shutdown –s –t ####” that require admin access from cmd/etc
in python ?
If anyone can answer, thank you…
im using Visual Studio Code with Python in windows 10 btw
Python has no way to override the operating system’s permissions, that
would be a terrible security bug if it did. That would mean any virus,
malware or spyware would simply have to use Python and just like that
they would have access to the entire system.
If your Python script needs admin access, you have to run it as a user
with admin access. Under Linux and Unix systems, the easiest way to do
that is with sudo:
but I don’t know what the equivalent is for Windows 10. That’s a Windows
question. If you can find out how to run any script with admin
privileges in Windows, Python scripts should work the same way.
