QuestionElevating privileges for a non-priv'd user? Pin

In my current customer's environment, we have Windows 7 machines on the factory floor that production people use to get their job done. The accounts they use are quite restricted - historical reasons Wink | ;) . Anyway, one thing one of these machines needs to do is some low level formatting of compact flash cards. The commands used require accessing very low level operations like DISKPART, etc, so permissions must be elevated for the script to be able to run.

Normally, I would run this script on my laptop by right clicking on it and Running As Administrator, supply the password and off we go. But we cannot give the admin password out, just not a good idea.

Is there any way to install or set up a script with elevated permissions? I've not done anything like this before, but off the cuff, I'm thinking creating a simple service, installed with priv's and having the non-priv'd script send it a request.

Ideas?
