Is there a Group Policy that I can set that will allow a standard user on Vista to run an approved program as an administrator without any prompts for security elevation?

Thanks

There sure is and it's explained here:  http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsVista/en/library/00d04415-2b2f-422c-b70e-b18ff918c2811033.mspx#BKMK_AdminUAC

Essentially you want to have the program "Run as Administrator" all the time.

Ok I read that article many times. Where does it say that From Windows Server 2003 (Active Directory) I can set a group policy that A Vista machine running as a standard user can run a specific program as an administrator without any interaction or knowledge from the standard user.

thank you

Since Vista no longer uses .adm files for it's Group Policy settings (it uses .admx) you need to configure this from a Vista machine.  You can load the Domain Group Policy Management Console on one of the Vista machines and configure the domain's policies from there.

I cant have any modification from a Vista machine. I need a straight up solution from Server 2003 if there is any. If not then i guess the answer is no.

You don't understand what I'm saying.   Group Policy Object Editor on Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, or Windows 2000 machines will not display new Windows Vista Administrative Template policy settings that may be enabled or disabled within a GPO.

You don't have to go to every Vista machine to do this, but you need to run the Domain's Group Policy Manager from one of them to configure the policies.  

You can read more about this here:  http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsVista/en/library/02633470-396c-4e34-971a-0c5b090dc4fd1033.mspx?mfr=true

So, the answer isn't "NO", it's just slightly different than you are perceiving it should be.
