Default Shell command under Windows Vista

Hi all,

I have a tiny problem with a vba code under Windows Vista. I need a way to start a program using the shell command or something else like this:

Code:
shell("updater.exe", 1)
The problem is, that this is actually an updater program, which has to be started in Administrator mode. Now, when I try to start it like in Win Xp the user doesn't get the UAC Window asking him if he wants to continue starting the program. The Shell command doesn't do anything.

Anybody has an idea how can I accomplish this? (Starting Winword.exe under Administrator privileges solves the problem, but this is of course out of question)


Robert.
