Windows 7: Allow non administrator to calibrate touch screen

Allow non administrator to calibrate touch screen

I need to allow non administrators to calibrate the touch screen. As you can see, the calibrate button causes the UAC login to appear. Does anyone know a way around this?

One way to do it would be to create a group touchscreen users. give them std user plus mark the cpanel/folder to give them access. they stay std users and can mess with the touch screen

I had to modify the user GPO to allow control panel access to get the applet to run at all, but there doesn't appear to be a way to not require elevated privileges to click the calibration button.
