Running a particular Application with Admin privilege

Hi,

I need to run only one application with Admin privilege whilst logged in as a normal user. I do not want the user to type the password it needs to be cached in a script in the application launch.

Please help.

Here is a quick link on doing this:

You will need to ensure UAC is configured so the user will get a prompt indicating the application needs elevation.

Prepare for your VMware VCP6-DCV exam.

Josh Coen and Jason Langer have prepared the latest edition of VCP study guide. Both authors have been working in the IT field for more than a decade, and both hold VMware certifications. This 163-page guide covers all 10 of the exam blueprint sections.

Try looking at this tool:

I've not used it before, but it should encrypt the credential.

Hi Gulf,

Can you give a little more detail about the type of user and program. While you may want to just run it with different credentials it may be easier with another solution.

With more information we may be able to find a more effective solution about how to run the application.

Some suggestions could be (without any information some may not be applicable)
- Launch the app on startup using a VB script or command prompt login script. This way its launched with the correct credentials and the user just sees the application open.
- placing the application on the network as a network install instead of a local install..

How often do they run this application?
