Windows 7: UAC prompt on WYSIWYG application for standard users

UAC prompt on WYSIWYG application for standard users

Hi all,

We have an issue that I'm not sure how to get around. We have a piece of software called WYSIWYG installed in one of our student labs. It will open fine when you log onto the PCs as an administrator (we have UAC elevated prompts surpressed with Group Policy) however when a student who is not an administrator tries to open the application they get a UAC prompt asking for admin credentials.

The .EXE itself has a UAC shield on the icon.

Is there anyway we can get this application to open for all students who log onto these machines who are not adminsitrators?

Any help appreciated,
