Administrator Rights to a application on windows 7 local user

By amitverma1113 ·
I have installed a application on windows 7 to a local user. when i run the application it runs with local user rights. when it does its not fully functional. so i want to give administrator rights to that particular application on windows 7 local user. so that the user can run that application with admin rights.

the thing i have tried is that i have gone to the application properties > compatibility tab > run as administrator then put tick on it. but when i run the application it asks for administrator user id and password. and that i dont want.

i want that the user can run the application directly with admin rights without prompting to user.

please guide.

To best of my knowledge, this can't be done without admin credentials

For obvious reasons of security if an application requires admin priviledge, the only way is to make that user an admin, as far as I know without throwing all security out the window. Might try posting in Q&A.
