Changing app to admin priveliges.

Im trying to make it so that my son has the capability to run a program using admin, and only that one program, is there anyway to do that so i don't have to constantly put my password in to allow him to play?

Welcome to Seven forums clatch.
You can make a user account for your son and reinstall the program and allow All Users to run. No password nor admin permission needed then. :)
