Grant permanent UAC permission to one program?

How can I whitelist a specific application so I don't have to get the dreadful propt each time I login? It's actually an .exe patch needed and located in the startup programs in msconfig.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

AFAIK you cannot selectively disable UAC for certain applications, only disable UAC completely –  James Apr 7 '12 at 20:06
I really hope there is a workaround, otherwise it's the biggest fail ever.. –  polyglot Apr 7 '12 at 20:08

You can avoid a UAC prompt by running the executable as a scheduled task that starts when a user logs in.

When creating the task, make sure you check the box "run with highest privileges".
