RunAsProfessional and User Account Control

we have an admin that writes scripts and executes them using RunAsProfessional.  So the files that run are RAP scripts I suppose.  

Anyways, he insists on using our administrator account and not a service account with elevated privileges.  He says that because we have UAC turned on that he can only use administrator.  Please help me find a work-around for this guy as he will not give in.

The workstations are Windows 7 Pro and XP Pro, the Servers are 2008 R2

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would just fire the admin.
