The fault for this lies squarely with Asus who ignored Microsoft's published recommendations for App design and signing ahead of the 2017 Fall Update of Windows 10 which tightened up how UAC handles apps.

Given it's two years since then check if Asus have released a compatible update but until they do you can use Microsoft's Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT) and the RunAsInvoker command.

Scroll down to "Without Shortcut using Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT)" here:

Make the change just for the LED controller (of course you could always uninstall it ;) ) NOT to UAC globally as UAC is really there to help protect your machine.
