Understanding UAC on Domain

I am starting to do some testing of windows 7 on our network and running into issues with something’s not working due to UAC, I am trying to work through the issues instead of just turning off UAC. We currently still have a windows 2003 AD environment just for some background. What I would like to know is if there any specific guidelines to follow for UAC. I have listed some of the issues I am having bellow

Map drives vbs script does not running when logging on but does run manually
Printer script ask you to install all the printer drivers the first time you login
Outlook will not let me attach my old PST file unless outlook is running as admin
Other custom programs ask if it’s ok that they run.

Any and all help would be awesome

Unfortunately you wont achieve this. My company spent several weeks trying to do this but the Windows UAC is so unpredictable and doesn't always alllow/block the same thing twice.
It is just far easier to turn off the UAC all together. Nice one MS!!!

You could try the registry entries for "UAC for Administrators".  I have used it and it seems that the UAC is still operational, but prompts quite a bit less.

Check out this article:  http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/disable-user-account-controluac-for-administrators-only/

Hope this helps!
