Value: C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe

Save and update your ini in netlogon\profileunity share.

b) If elevation is not working the cmd will not display "Administrator"

As an option, attached is configuration file which will elevate the cmd and also create a shortcut to the CMD on the test user desktop. Just download the ini to your netlogon share. A PDF file is also provided which lists the settings in a detailed format, and a .json file is attached for importing the configuration into your console easily.

Note: The .ini file is from the 6.0 console. Do not use this file with ProfileUnity 5.7 or earlier.

Note: The elevated command prompt will not launch any elevated programs.
