I'm running in a non-admin account on my development workstation, using "Run as..." for all things that need administrator privileges. Thankfully under XP even the control panel applets allow that. This doesn't seem to work however (or I simply haven't found out how, yet) for network connection settings. Say I want to temporarily change the IP address of an adapter, what would be the easiest way to open the properties page for the network connection with full privileges, without logging in as another user (fast user switching is disabled)?
I'm looking for a solution working on Windows XP (64), where ncpa.cpl does what I want, but seems to just open an Explorer window when started from an Administrator cmd while logged in as a limited user.
