There is a terminal server(Win 2008) that the users log on to. The users start a program that is stored on a network share. The shortcut in the start menu to the application is stored on another network share.
To start the application corretly, users have to rightclick the shortcut in the start menu and choose "run as administrator." This is a bit clumsy I think, so I wanted to set this option by default.
I tried this via the shortcut, and setting the property: "run this program as an administrator" on the shortcut. But that is not possible since the shortcut is stored n a network location. I then tried to log on where the application executeable is stored, and tried to set this option there. The option is greyed out, since UAC is not turned on, on the application server(but it is on the terminal server). I then tried to log on to the server that hosts the startmenu items for the user, but UAC is turned off there too. I have no idea if a option in the shortcut would affect my user only or all users anyway.
So, then I am stuck. The users have to right click and choose "run as administrator" every time they start the application. Is there a way to go around this other then what I have done without doing to much environmental changes? I guess that might have a GPO for all this, was hoping to avoid that.
Turning off uac on the TS servers is preferably not an option.
