Windows 7: Disable UAC on a given app

18 May 2010   #11


as far as I know you can tell windows not to warn you when a certain type of program is run initially, but as far as asking UAC not to prompt you when a specific program is run I can't say. And by initially I mean during installation; i.e. don't warn me if a .exe is going to run, don't warn me if a .msi is going to run; .zip; etc.

I did that but I'm still getting the prompt

Use Vista for the compatibility mode. It should function as it would in XP mode.
