  I was told back when working in LC6.7.11 that the only way to have an 
LC app execute commands with admin permissions on Windows is with a 
Helper app. You have to make a small windows standalone that does your 
shell commands that your main app can launch via the "open process 
elevated" command and then use sockets or interrocess communication to 
tell the helper to execute the commands you want.

A LiveCode standalone can not elevate itself.
