I want to launch the command window as the administrator in a limited winxp account but when I invoke the following command " runas /user: mypc\administrator cmd " from the Run box, the command line window flashes onto my screen and disappears. What can I do to make the command line window stay open.

Why not right click on the Command Prompt icon and choose Run As. . .?

Open a cmd windows first. Then type in the command you are running in that. If there are any errors you will now be able to see them.

If the account you are using is restricted from doing certain things, trying to use the runas command won't get around that.
