In Windows 7, how can we change the IP Address without Admin rights?

Hi ,
I am using a windows application which has a feature to change the IP address to 10.XX.XX.1 to connect to a server and restore it back to its original address on exit of connection to the server. The windows application is run with administrator rights. Now i want to run the application without admin rights and change\restore the IP address. My application for changing the IP it uses netsh commands from command prompt. Please suggest a way in which i can be able to do achieve this.

Run the program as Administrator. There maybe other problems if the program is run as a standard user. If you are logged in as a standard user then right click on the application and select 'run as Administrator'. depending on the environment you may not be able to do this either. It all depends if you are connected to a domain and if Group Policy is being applied to stop you from doing admin tasks etc.

If I were you I would speak to the Server Administrator about it - He will know more about the program and the Server setup.
