I am using IIS 8 in my machine.
i want to execute the appcmd command in command prompt as Normal user.
while i executing this command. i Got the error as below,
c:\Windows\System32\inetsrv>appcmd.exe list wp
ERROR ( message:The WAS service is not available - try starting the service first. )
It is working , when i open the command prompt as administrator.
How can i achieve this as normal user?
Is there a way to get the application pool name of a worker process from C++ ?

No, you cannot. IIS API and its supporting utilities require administrator permissions to run in most cases if not in all. Except administrators, why do normal users care about that?

I didn't find any document about how to achieve this in c++ language. So maybe you could try other methods to achieve this like use c++ to execute powershell command, cmd prompt or invoke c#.net code from c++ following this link while it is not difficult
to get the app pool name from system.web.administrator:
