    Hi Craig,

    This depends on the program and why does it require to have administrative
    privileges to run.

    Sometimes older programs need the write privileges to e.g. %windir% folder
    and subfolders or read & write permission to part of the registry. If these
    are only problems, then you could use programs like FileMon and RegMon from
    Sysinternals (www.sysinternals.com). All tools on www.sysinternals.com are
    free.

    Run e.g. FileMon first and then run the program that you want to
    troubleshoot. After you run the program see the FileMon. Pay attention to
    error such as "Access Denied". Repeat this process with RegMon tool.

    I hope this helps,

    Mike's suggestion should always be tried first. If you run in to a dead end
    trying that, Joe Richards has created his own version of runas called cpau
    that can also encode user credentials needed to start an application and can
    be used in batch files linked to a shortcut, etc.. The links below explains
    more. --- Steve

    Hi
    or try runasspc. The user could start your application with an admin
    account without knowing the password.

    robotronic.de/runasspc.html.

    Help is in german but the tool is english and simple to use.
