    Hi Alice-7236,

    You need to run the batch file with administrator rights.

    Follow the steps mentioned below.

    1. Right-click on your batch file.
    2. Click Create Shortcut
    3. Right-click on the shortcut files and click on Properties.
    4. In the Shortcuts tab, click on Advanced.
    5. Check the ‘Run as Administrator’ checkbox.
    6. Click OK to close the dialogue box.
    7. Click on Apply to save the changes. Click Ok to close Properties.

    Now, every time you run the shortcut file by double-clicking it, the Windows UAC message will be displayed. Click Ok to run as administrator in Windows. This is required as commands would need access to more system-level components that are not available when you open CMD in user mode.

    I hope this answers your question.
