Pretend that I am a Karaoke DJ running a show with the application Sax & Dottys which only runs on Windows. I would like to hire someone to run the show for me in my absence. This means they would use my computer and software to run the show. But I don't want them to be able to copy/steal the Karaoke files from my computer.
My idea is to create a user account for them that does not have permissions to read/write to the directories containing the Karaoke files. But their user account should have access to run the Sax & Dottys application, and that application should run with elevated permissions so it could read the karaoke files and directories.
Is there some way to allow a limited permission user to run an application with elevated privileges without that user knowing the password to grant administrator access?
Basically, I would like to make it so the user does have access to the files on the file system but only through the Sax & Dottys application. I don't want them to have access to the files by any other means. Is this possible in Windows 7? How?
