Sudo for Vista!

March 3rd, 2007 · 7 Comments · Windows

I’ve been looking for a sudo for Vista for a long time now.  I was so excited when I found it, I neglected to notice my ice cream was melting into my lap.  Stupid dorm heating.

The only problem with this Start++ is that it the installers runs it to add its hooks or whatever, but it fails to, so it doesn’t initially work:

C:\>sudo cmd
‘sudo’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Once I ran the configuration utility it worked fine:

C:\>sudo cmd
Start++ executing command

Its only differences from sudo seem to be it branches into another process instead of remaining in the same thread, and it can’t run internal commands, only programs.

C:\>sudo echo !
Start++ executing command

The system cannot find the file specified.
