IVMS330 CCTV software requires to be run with elevated privilege?


We were advised by IVMS330 Hatch CCTV software vendor
that it is required to be run with 'elevated priviliges'.

Anyone encountered this & could it not be run without the
elevated privileges?

If it needs to be run in elevated privilges, which specific
Windows privileges does it require?

Below is what the IVMS330 vendor sent us (still trying to get his tel to clarify
what happen if not run with highest privileges):

These are applications that involves the UAC of the operating system. You can set exception to the UAC as follows
 
Method 2: Run Programs With Admin Privileges Without UAC Prompt
If you wish to bypass UAC in Windows 10, you will need to create a task bypass in the task scheduler. Here is an example of running the Registry Editor with administrative privileges so that it does not launch the User Account Control prompt.
 
Open a Run dialog.
Type taskschd.msc and press Enter to launch the Task Scheduler GUI.
With Task Scheduler Library selected from the left pane, click on Create Task… from the right pane.
This will launch the Create Task window with 4 to 5 tabs.
Under the General tab, make the following changes:
Name the task something easily understandable like “App-Elevated”
Fill in a description for the same, so you can recognize it.
Make sure to check the box associated to Run with highest privileges.

an it professional in your area can probably use the microsoft compatibility toolkit to make a patch so it doesn't need to run elevated.

Reckon David meant we can tweak that iVMS software using an
MS compat toolkit so that the iVMS software can run without
privilege elevation.

Care to share more specific details as to which toolkit & any
link with details on how to do it?
