RE: Executing app with admin privileges

They sure do. So you remind them that if they log on to the network as an
admin, they're fired. Then audit, audit, audit.

Sure, but they'd need the admin's password!

Could the users use the Run As command and run the app as an 
administrator?
(Right-click the executable and click Run As.)

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
