I am running Windows 7 64 bit in a multiuser environment and one of the users needs 2 programs that, for some unknown reason, require administrative privileges to run. I am the administrator and when I am logged in I can run the programs, however, when the user attempts to run the program while logged in, he is prompted for administrative credentials. If I enter my administrative credentials while he is logged in, the program works correctly. I thought this would be an easy fix. Using the compatibility tab for the executable file, I set Windows 7 to run this program as the administrator for all users. The icon for the executable file now has a shield on it, however the user is still prompted for administrative credentials when attempting to run the program. Also, when I installed the program, I ran the setup program using the "Run as Administrator" option I researched the problem on the software developer’s forum and there were a number of others with the same issue. Unfortunately, the suggested solutions involved granting the user local administrator privileges or turning off UAC. I was hoping someone here at the Windows 7 forum could offer a better solution.
