Windows 7: Administrator & program install

Administrator & program install

Trying to install a new program on my Windows 7 machine.
When I left click on it I get the "...you need administrator...." message.
When I right click & select "Run as administrator" I get the same message.
So I used Switch Users & brought a copy of the install over to the Admin. desktop.
Installed no problem.
But, how can I now use this program without have to switch over to Administrator?

Also, I thought I just posted almost the same post in General but I guess I was doing too many things at once and lost it - if this turns out to be a double post - SORRY!

If you have full permissions. Type the name of the program in search (from the standard user account). Make a short cut, so it can be easily accessed. You should be able to use it.

Helloo again.
Yeah I can access it via search & put a shortcut on the desktop but when launched I get the attached error?
This is the first time I have had any trouble installing anything on Windows 7?

Try this put name in search. When it appears, right click and run as adminsitrator. Does that help?

Barefoot and I were typing at the same time. His solution cuts out one step. You may want to give that a try.

Plot thickens!
I tried again from my regular account running Task... as Admin. but it then does ask for my credentials but will not accept them?
It asks for them during the Task creation process, NOT when I launch Task...
