I know I'm replying to a 2 month old post....
These directions where only "sort of" helpful. Yes, it shows me how to
get Vista to run the program as Administrator.
But then it prompts for the Administrator password. This is bad.
I want to be able to allow my students to run a particular program (a
program that in my case controls an oscilloscope) that seems to need to
run as Administrator. Their accounts are all "normal" accounts (no
Admin privs). I do *not* want to give them the Administrator/root
password (for obvious reasons).
What I need is a way to run the program as Administrator, without having
Vista ask me for the Administrator password.
SURELY there has to be a way to do this, isn't there. After all, "chmod
4711" has been around in the unix world for 30+ years (meaning this
isn't exactly a new concept)....
