UAC is an annoyance, the way I usually see it bypassed is by creating a service component for the applications in question, the service component then runs the routines that have trouble with UAC.

I'm guessing its "impossible" to surcumvent it in an other way, since UAC is developed to be a security layer to stop apps from running with elevated previleges without it being allowed.

Writing an app to do this without confirmation from UAC would be considered a missbehaving app.

Another thing you could do is check what causes your app to spawn UAC and see if the routines that cause UAC to get activated can't be programmed into the app so that they run at a layer where UAC doesn't mind them running.

I'm pretty sure you can't make the program coded to make itself run with administrative privileges. I did find however if the issue is the program wanting to modify files in its directory, make it install itself somewhere other than "Program Files", as Vista seems to think that folder is sacred and the programs in it shouldn't be changing things.

Yes, at least in the case of programs such as HydraIRC that need to modify files in their installation folder, if you install them anywhere other than the "Program Files" folder it will let them do what they want.
