Scripting Utilities for Windows

I wanted to script some utilities for a new product I am developing, and I thought I might try Scala as a portable way to do it.

However, the utilities need to run on Windows too - in particular they often need to run elevated with admin privileges.

Does anyone know of an existing set of Scala libraries/tools that has useful features for Windows (like elevating the shell), that I could use as a foundation for my utilities?

Are there any best practices for using Scala in this way? In particular when you might need to troubleshoot your product in the field at a customer site and need to modify scripts or write new ones, without rebuilding your product.

Cheers, Eric
