Always Running an Application as an Administrator
Windows Vista also enables you to mark an application so that it always runs
with administrator privileges. This is useful for resolving compatibility
issues with legacy applications that require administrator privileges. It is
also useful for Windows Vistacompliant applications that normally run in
standard mode but which you use to perform administrative tasks. As
examples, consider the following:
a.. An application written for an earlier version of Windows requires
administrator privileges. Because this program is configured to use standard
mode by default under Windows Vista, the program isn't running properly and
is generating numerous errors. To resolve the compatibility problem, you
decide to mark the application to always run as an administrator.
b.. A standard application written for Windows Vista is routinely run in
elevated mode and used for administration tasks. To eliminate the need to
right-click the application shortcut and select Run As Administrator before
running the application, you decide to mark it to always run as an
You cannot mark system applications or processes to always run as an
administrator. Only nonsystem applications and processes can be marked to
always run as an administrator.
You can mark an application to always run as an administrator by following
1. On the Start menu, locate the program that you want to always run
as an administrator.
2. Right-click the application's shortcut and then click Properties.
3. In the Properties dialog box, select the Compatibility tab.
4. Under Privilege Level, select the Run This Program As An
Administrator check box.
