Right click on the application and RUN as administrator or IF it is a Domain joined machine you have to relax the application from Group policy security rules

OR else add user to local administrator  group , so user can open the application with out entering Administrator credentials

If i put the user in local admin group then he can do anything.. i want him to use only specific application as a admin not all

Basic but important question: why??? There is a flaw if the application needs to run as admin ...

You can go into the compatibility properties of the application to mark it for always running as administrator. But that still requires to enter the paasword.
If you run  runas /u:administrator /savecred cmd.exe once you can save the password, but then it never needs to get entered for that user.

just wondering if the issue is for all applications or a few sepecific ones?
Rajul RajInformation Security OfficerCommented:
To mark an application to always run as an administrator, do the following:
1. On the Start menu, locate the program that you want to always run as an administrator.
2. Right-click the application’s shortcut, and then click Properties.
3. In the Properties dialog box, click the Compatibility tab.
4. Do one of the following:
To apply the setting to the currently logged-on user, select the Run This Program As An Administrator check box, and then click OK.
To apply the setting to all users on the computer and regardless of which shortcut is used to start the application, click Change Setting For All Users to display the Properties dialog box for the application’s .exe file, select the Run This Program As An Administrator check box, and then click OK twice.

Your application makes some changes to the local system thus it requires running as administrator. You have either to give more rights to the local user or let him start it as admin.

From the sound of it, the user does not need to have local admin rights.  If you want to give the user the least amount of rights, then don't, instead give it to the application.  You are right to not want the user to have the admin password either.  Follow the steps outlined above in the article linked to by Narasimha Sumanth, it uses the Credential Manager, a useful but little known feature in Windows that safely stores the passwords.  There are 3rd party apps out there too that can do this for you (running the application as an admin), but I would use the Credential Manager for this.  That way, only the elevated process has the higher access, not the user.

You guys seem to forget that I mentioned both the compatibility settings and the savecred option first. And that there are security risks with stroring the password.
