Windows 7: Can I stop UAC prompt for scheduled program (not "task" oriented)?

Can I stop UAC prompt for scheduled program (not "task" oriented)?

I have a TV capture app which required installing in legacy mode. With scheduled recordings a UAC prompt requires confirmation before initialization negating the usefulness of scheduling. I can leave the app open in the background and scheduled recordings will proceed as expected but with XP I could simply have it closed and allow it to wake itself in prep for a scheduled recording.

Is there any way to have this single app bypass UAC? I can't see a way to integrate this with Windows Task Scheduler nor do I see a way to make the Elevated Program Shortcut be a work-around. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

This challenge is on a Windows 7 32bit system (not the one listed in system specs).

Hello golem,

You could try setting the scheduled task to use the SYSTEM account.

I've set up tasks to use this account to run while I'm logged in as a Standard User that require Admin authority.
The tasks run without any prompt, and no window is displayed - task runs "silently".
I've never needed to do a wake-up for what I needed, but it's something you could play with...
