How to allocate Administrator permission to Standard User for Windows

We have an application(Myapp.exe), which is runs under administrator account properly( as it edit/update/write DLL in registry). But due to to security resons we dont want to provide Admin password to all users, and we want to run application under Standard User ( member of Users group only).
I did these setting in MyApp.exe.manifest
<requestedExecutionLevel level="asInvoker" uiAccess="false" />
and linked in the file MyApp.rc as given below
Partial Class MyApp :Form
{
Public MyApp
{
InitializeComponent();
---
---
---
#define MANIFEST_RESOURCE_ID 1
MANIFEST_RESOURCE_ID RT_MANIFEST "ProLaw.exe.manifest"
}
}
I buld the project, and through Standard user i tried to run the project, but it is still asking Administrator password.
Am i missing any step?

You might see if you may be able to use the tutorial below to allow the standard user to run your elevated app without them having to enter your password or getting a UAC prompt.
