The solution is to deselect "run as administrator" under program properties and then force an administrator account to be used to run the program using the technique outlined here. If you choose to both enable and use the actual "Administrator" account, this has the benefit of getting rid of the UAC prompt too (as well as no password entry) since UAC is automatically disabled for the actual "Administrator" account. If you use any other user with administrative privileges you will still have to click the "Yes" button, but you won't have to type in a password. This technique also works with Vista too.
BTW, to enable the "Administrator" account you need to:
Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable
at an elevated command prompt. After that you can configure a shortcut to use runas using "Administrator" and this should remove both the password entry requirement (after the first run) as well as the UAC prompt. Make sure you add a password for the "Administrator" account if you enable it.

I followed the instructions step-by-step. Including creating the Administrator account which worked out successfully. Launching the shortcut and entering in the password that's when things break and space sniffer doesn't work. Here is the error message.
Enter the password for <pcname>-PC\Administrator:
Attempting to start C:\SpaceSniffer\SpaceSniffer.exe as user "<account-name>-PC\Admi
