The user using the computer logs-in to the Windows 7 Professional system through an Active Directory domain and has no administrative rights.
I am the administrator and can give him the rights but, for obvious reasons, don't want to.
The user needs to use one special application (a surveillance dashboard) that demands local administrative rights.
So I need the user to be able to run this (and only this) particular application in elevated rights mode without knowing the password (I don't mind to enter and save it for this shortcut but I couldn't find such an option). And/or (both, ideally) the application to start up (elevated) after the user logs in.
I understand that this is going to be a security breach anyway, but there is hardly any choice.
I have tried adjusting the shortcut properties in many different way with no luck - it still asks for an administrator credentials.
I have also tried experimenting with Task Scheduler but the best result I reached is the application running invisibly with no GUI shown (in all the other set-ups the task was just failing to start).
