Hi,

Right-click on my computer icon on the desktop and hoose properties.  
Click the the Advanced System Settings
Click the Settings button under Performance.
Select the Data Execution Prevention tab.

Select the option "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select:"

Add your program there.

But with this one any program will run without permission so there can be security threat . Is there any way i can just give permission to the exe in my datacard ?

with the suggestion as above, you specify which programs to run WITHOUT the nag screens.  All else is blocked, and your app is allowed.

If your follow the above steps, you are adding your datacard exe to the DEP exclusion list, which excludes windows from prompting you when running the datacard exe.
