Hello Tomek,

I did not try to old GUI on Windows 7, sorry (I've only tried the GUI at 
all as I saw the info about the new interface).

On the VBS question, trying an arbitrary VBS file shows the same: the 
Windows right-click menu does not include "Run as administrator" or "Run 
as different user".
