Hello Experts,

Our policy is that users have only Power Users rights on workstations.
Unfortunately there are some applications that require users to be local administrators.

When I set the executable to be run as administrator, logged in as administrator, the applications still asks for credentials when a Power User is logged in.

Can this be done in Windows 7 Pro?
Are there certains steps I should follow?
Maybe in gpedit.msc there is something I should check off?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
