How to call TestExecute from build step?

I've got a batch file that starts a testexecute project for me and that starts the textexecute program and I see it start running the tests and it opens a browser and it looks good.  When I try to run from within TeamCity, either the batch file or the command and parameters direct, it fails with:  CreateProcess error=740, the requested operation requires elevation.

Is it possible to run my TestComplete cases from TeamCity?  How do I give it elevated permissions?

How do you run TeamCity agent? If you run it as service, then please try to start it via command line. For more details please see the section.

I was running it as a service.  So I stopped that and then from an admistrative prompt I started it using agent.bat start.  I think it started to work but I've run this so many times manually and from teamcity I've lost track.

Anyways, right now, multiple times in a row, I've got the build agent running started from an administrative prompt and I am still getting the 'cannot start build runner' with the 'CreateProcess error=740, The requested operation requires elevation'

In the console window I do see a message about another agent is registered but I've verified only that console is started and running and the service is off. 

If I start an admin cmd console, I see one console in my task manager.  If I then start the agent, I end up with two more consoles in my task manager even though I only see one new console window.  If I then click run build, yet another console appears in task manager, so it seems the team city server is spawning it's own console and not using the one I started.
