How can i modify a restricted user to use some programs that require
administrator privillages?

It can lunch automatically or by user clicking on it.
Shift and right click requires administrator password.

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

account without knowing the password.
