I have a winforms application (c#). It will be deployed to specific users' desktops. When it is run, I need it to run with elevated permissions. Specifically I want it to run with the permissions of an account I specify without having to enter the username and password. What is the best way to implement this? I'm working with visual studio 2017 in a Windows 8 environment.
