Elevated privileges

By SeanL ·
I have an application installed on a desktop that requires the user to have admin rights in order to run the app. There is no way I want to give the user admin rights on the local machine. Is there someway to give the user elevated rights on a specific application? I know that I can use the runas command, only downside, is that the user has to enter a password. I do not want the user to know a password of an account that has admin rights.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Read this article for a way around this using a tool called TQCRUNAS:

It could help you out on this.

Link did not work. I found another source for this - regmon from sysinternals used to monitor the changes made to the registry by the application. I then simply gave the user access rights to certain registry keys
