Windows 7: Allowing access to non-admin users

Allowing access to non-admin users

Hey all,

I need to allow some of our users to start an application on their workstations, but UAC will only allow admin users to start this application (control software for remote security cameras). The workstations are running Windows 7, and our server architecture is Server 2003. We'd prefer the application to be installed on the local machines rather than run directly from the server. Does anyone know a way to allow a user to start such an app without A) having administrator privileges, and B) completely disabling UAC?

Thanks!

Hi sqlreid and welcome to Sevenforums!

There's this way: Elevated Program Shortcut - Create for Standard User

In short you use the built-in administrator account and store the password in the Credential Manager. But it's not a perfect solution, make sure you read the information in the warning boxes!
