how to bring up a cmd console window in admin

working on a program that runs different cmd console commands. I can get it to ping other computers tracert computers but unable to get a remote shutdown command to go through I think it needs command prompt to use admin rights to work this is on a domain based network. I can send the commands if I open my own cmd prompt. Below is the code i am using private void button5_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { //restart command string pcname; string restart; string strCmdText; pcname = Convert.ToString(PC.Text); restart = Convert.ToString(ReasonforRestart.Text); strCmdText =

quot;/k shutdown /r /m \\{pcname} /c {restart} /t 10"; System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("CMD.exe", strCmdText); //shutdown /r \\pcname /c restart
