Windows 7: Only one program has trouble with UAC

Only one program has trouble with UAC

When I try to open Adobe InDesign, User Account Control gives me the nag, "Do you want the following program to make changes to this computer." I don't get this when opening any of my other Adobe (or other) programs. The Adobe programs are CS3 or newer.

I would prefer to keep User Account Control on. I've gone into security permissions for the program and checked Full Control. Can I do anything else?

Using Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I'm the only user on this computer and am running it as Administrator.

Thanks.

Dude, just turn UAC off, you most likely don't need it!

Right Click on the program shortcut and go to properties. Then select "Run this program as administrator" from the compatibility tab.

Problem solved. I tried the other approaches in this thread first, since they seemed easier. No luck. This is the one that worked:
"Hi there, look at this tutorial:
Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create"
Thank you so much, Pierre.
