Giving users rights to run a application from a Terminal Server Desktop

I have a 2008 R2 terminal server which is also the Domain Controller

I have installed my accounting software MYOB on the server. When a user tries to open the program it comes up with the UAC  administrator logon box. You need to enter the admin username and password before it will open.

If you add the user to the administrators group it works fine

If  you are logged onto the server as administrator it works fine.

Where do you change the settings to allow normal users to open programs without admin username and password

Does MYOB work without admin rights on desktops?

Also is it a LAB (DC+ TS)?

means user access with RDP file or direct login to Terminal server ?

They log directly onto the server

I thought there might be a setting in GP to change

you have to authorize all user to run that exe..
