Run program as administrator from domain limited account

We have a program that needs to run as administrator.  We need to have the program run with saved administrator credentials from our limited user account.

Workstation is windows 7 pro

Domain Controller is Windows 2008  r2

Are there any 3rd party programs you recommend that will save encrypted credentials and allow the limited users to run this program from a shortcut?

Let me correct a bit: first, credential saving has nothing to do with the checkbox "run as administrator". The checkbox is useless here. Then: the power users group has no meaning any more. No privileges added. It's there only for backward compatibility with older software - so forget about it, it dies with xp.

Then: why would you want 3rd party software? Windows has many builtin ways:
1) the /savecred parameter for runas (encrypted credentials)
2) scheduled tasks with saved credentials (select to run with highest possible rights) (encrypted)
3) batches utilizing the freeware psexec (plain text)

First, login as administrator to that machine and right click on that short cut --> properties -- Compatability tab -- open change settings for all users -- select run this program as administrator (under privilage level)

then logoff and login as user and check either it's working or not. if not working

Next - login back to admin and right click on that short cut --> properties -- security tab -- add perticular user or group and give full permissions.

if that is also not working...
add that user to "power users" group.
