Dual Boot: Windows 8.1 & Server 2012r2 VMs: Kali Linux, Backbox, Matriux, Windows 8.1

It should work with any program.

If you want to turn off UAC completely -- No UAC prompt
User Account Control (UAC) - Change Prompt Behavior for Standard Users

This guide will turn off UAC for specific software. You have to do this for EACH program you want UAC turned off
