in windows 7 is just scroll bar to change UAC level with predefinet settings. You cant changet by program. If you want you can sett atribute start as administrator on app so on start it ask for UAC and after all in ap have rights.

the procedure at http://www.vista4beginners.com/Disable-UAC-for-certain-applications looks like exactly what i want, but it doesn't seem to work.
the 2 forms that offer a test run button both worked fine and 'How to apply the UAC fix' seemed to work as well:
C:\Windows\system32>sdbinst G:\Programs\Microsoft\UACtoolkit\EverythingFix.sdb
Installation of EverythingFix complete.

C:\Windows\system32>

but i still get the dark screen and form to click.

the procedure at http://www.vista4beginners.com/Disable-UAC-for-certain-applications seems to be for win95 as shown in the 'compatibility modes' form. the win7 version of this form is different. do you know if it should work in win7?

the program i'm trying to fix is the portable version of Everything from http://www.voidtools.com/

the procedure outlined by johnb6767 looks like the right way to do this, but i couldn't get it to work in win7..

the 'Create the Scheduled Task Item' suggested by jcimarron seems less elegant, but does work, so i'm using it
