Application needs to be run as administrator?

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have an application that needs to be run with administrative rights.   It works fine on workstations but on the terminal server the only way I can get it to run is by clicking "run as administrator" .

When I try to go into the properties of the icon to set it up to always run as administrator all the options are greyed out.

Can some on please advice on a way around this?
