How can I modify UAC behavior in Windows 2012 R2 Remote Desktop Services to allow SAGE 100 2016 accounting application to run as a published application.  Sage must run as an Administrator which then generates the UAC prompts.  I don't want to give Local Administrator rights to regular users.  

I tried disabling UAC in the registry editor with the "EnableLUA" key but once disabled the Sage application failed to load.  With UAC disabled, Sage fails to load and appears it no longer launches as an Admin despite that option still being set.
