comment How to use a Volume Shadow Copy to make backups
+1 This is pretty amazing. Thank you for taking the time to port this to ps (despite your hatred of VBS) and for sharing it here. I hope more people will find it useful, as this definitely deserves more than one up-vote.

comment Why does $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] have a value of “127.0.0.1” in local environment?
@Emanuil: Only if you are unaware what 127.0.0.1 is, and that is something so far-fetched that I did not assume it.

"That's when I run PHP locally." totally answers your own question. No?

comment Windows 2008 never run a program “as administrator”
PS: Whooohoo! My scheduled task runs under an unprivileged account! If I could up-vote you twice, I would. :-) I make a copy of the original update.exe to u.exe before I begin and run the u.exe. Et voilà, the batch file runs right to the end. Thanks again!

Yes, if it would have triggered the prompt (otherwise running un-elevated) I'd know what's going on. Maybe I wasn't 100% clear, but some of the comments clearly where of the "Oh, UAC, I know what he's asking" variety, and it kinda irritates me if folks seemingly don't even read the question from top to bottom.

You were right, it's the term "update" in the file name. Kudos to you, I would never have thought of that. What an annoying half-smart heuristic. Thanks for giving the right hint!

@Ben, you might notice that I did not even use the word "prompting" and that I quite thoroughly described what I'm facing.

Thanks Ben, that's the first sensible response to what I actually asked.

comment Windows 2008 never run a program “as administrator”
@Mark. I'm not sure how else I could possibly put it. This program does not trigger UAC. It shows up in Explorer with the blue-yellow shield overlay icon even if it is not running. This means, that it will be started as elevated or not at all. This happens before the program could possibly do anything itself. It is what you normally get when you configure it as "always run as administrator", just that this isn't the case. Really, guys, read what I wrote, because I only seem to be repeating myself here.
