What do you think of sudo7?

There are constantly some downloads on SF. But I don't received any feedback yet. Tell me what you think of the tool. Is it useful? How would you change it? Does it work on your computer? If it doesn't, what computer / software are you using?
Here's a discussion forum for the project. Let me know how I could improve sudo7.

Sudo7 Version ONE Released

I have released version ONE (1.0.0) of sudo7 today. It is still doing the same thing, elevating other programmes to run on administrative security level. In this release I have changed the maximum command line arguments to the Windows Vista and Windows 7 standard 8191 characters. The code is now commented and I have added a usage message if you call it without arguments.
So, tell me what you think! Go to the discussion board on SF
Cheers, Oli

I have moved the whole project to SourceForge now. It is now no longer available on DataFileHost.com. Go to SourceForge.net

sudo7 project on SourceForge

I created a project on SourceForge for sudo! The first release under BSD License will be uploaded soon.
sudo does not request for a password of the administator account. It just elevates the execution of a given program or script. For example if you want to start a service as a normal user under Windows Vista or Windows 7 you would try the command net start [ServiceName].
This usually does not work. You don't have enough rights to start a service. Even if you are in the Administrator Group.
With the sudo command, you can elevate your script or program now. just type sudo net start [ServiceName] and a popup window will appear asking you if you want to allow the elevation.
