Start debug to run as Administrator on Windows

I wondered whether it's possible to start a python script as Administrator on Windows (in order to manipulate the registry).

Right after asking I found a simple solution:

  • Make a copy of python.exe and name it pythonAdmin.exe (or whatever)
  • In the properties/compatibility tab set Run as Administrator

Now you can choose this executable as Python Executable in Project Properties or the launch configuration in Wing.
