run as admin issue

hi,
i dont know if its the most relevant forum but yet, this is the closest i found...

How can I set it so someone else can execute a program with “run as administrator” without needing know the admin password? My children have a game that only works correctly when it has administrator access…but I do not want to have to give my children overall administrator access. Is there any way to “run as administrator” for this specific program without me having to enter in the admin password every time? Appreciate any help!

You may create two different user accounts. One is with admin rights, and the other is only as a user . The admin account may be protected with a password, and the necessary programs are installed in that account, and for that account only .

EDIT : An user account with admin rights, that does not mean that the account can execute anything . The actual admin is "Trusted Installer", who holds all the admin rights.

If the admin account is password protected, and the programs installed there in such a manner that those are not accessible bt the other one, oncw you enter the account with the password, and can use all the programs there .
