Hi!

My name is Nile I have the following question:

How on WinXp can you get a program to run with Admin's Credentials under a
limited account. By the way, I looked at RUN AS as a possible solution and
also right-clicked on links and saw you could add that...

But in every case the Admin has to come and type his password in, I don't
like that. I would just love to see those programs start up as Admin and run
well on a Limited Account.

Any ideas and help would be appreciated!

Nile

Although there are ways to always do the run-as - I think you lose too much
doing this and gain nothing.

Why not configure the security of file/folder/registry associated with the
application in question so that the "user" can run the application?

The information is provided "as is", it is suggested you research for
yourself before you take any advice - you are the one ultimately
responsible for your actions/problems/solutions. Know what you are
getting into before you jump in with both feet.

Hi!
It seems a lot of work, I would have to watch the registry access at the
program start up and check what it does there. Plus the same for the
filesystem, with I guess the utilities from sysinternals.

Do you know of a quick/other way to do it?

Thanks
Nile
