# Run a program as admin all the time

Is there a way to configure an application to run as administrator all the time. I tried with the compatibility administrator utility but seems to work only for windows Vista and above.

The application is crashing because of some printer drivers that need admin rights.

EDIT: The application name is Zeh Raster and it's on Windows XP I would like not to provide the password each time that I need to run the app.

Is this not the right place to ask this? Why the down votes? –  tou Jul 2 '13 at 17:09
There isn't enough information, such as what operating system you're running or what program you're trying to run. –  Taegost Jul 2 '13 at 17:10
The question is tagged Windows-XP. The application name is Zeh Raster –  tou Jul 2 '13 at 17:11

You can use the runas.exe command to create a shortcut that launches with admin rights. Basically, make a new shortcut with the target:

runas.exe /user:administrator c:\path\to\program.exe

I was aware of this, but I would like not to have to provide the password each time they want to run the app. This is an enterprise environment. I updated my question –  tou Jul 2 '13 at 17:33
@tou, did you try the /savecred switch ? –  Ofiris Jul 2 '13 at 17:43
• Saving the credentials with the runas command with savecred works too, but you can run other programs as admin this way as well.
