Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt Windows 8.1pro


I recently upgraded a domain joined XP workstation to windows 8.1pro, I have a legacy software app that runs in compatibility mode but this requires an administrator account to authorise this, how can I exempt this application from the UAC Prompt?
