Administrator rights for a single program

Hi everyone,

We have a Windows 2003-based domain and now I'm wondering how to make a program run with local administrator rights automatically on an standard account on Vista Business.

We have a legacy program that requires administrator rights to run so right now we have to give client administrator rights to all users of our domain that needs to run the program.

What I want to do is:

Have all users run on a standard account but being able to run this single program with administrator rights _without_ having to type in a password.

Is this possible, and if so, how?

There is one hack I have used successfully:

Basically you create a task to run the program with admin rights.  Then create a shortcut to run the task.
