Additionally, you can set the properties of the program to always
"RunAs", then all the user would have to do is enter in the proper
password....

I'm using Win XP Pro and I have the Run As choice in the menu.

Hi,

Making the application "Run as" isn't possible ? On the client side, you
could make the client installer do this.

Hello everyone,

I have come across with the following problem:

I work at the systems department, and we MUST host every stupid 
application that is developed all over the organisation... most of the

times with no common criteria at all, neither with common sense.

Now, we have to install a client/server application, and it has been 
developed in such a way, that the user who executes the client side, 
has to have "local admin/advanced user" privileges on the desktop 
where he is executing it...

There's no way to modify that application, so I wonder whether or not 
there is a tool that could allow me to configure the system in such a 
way that all the users could execute that application, without giving 
them "local admin/advanced user" privileges for the whole system (only

for that stupid application).

I wonder if there's a way to acomplish that wether with AD policies or

third party tools (better if free ;-)

Thanks in advance, and best regards
