No, there is no exception list for UAC.

A easy way to bypass UAC for certain programs, without disabling UAC, is to use Elevator. It will add the Elevate Me option to the context menu of programs:

  • Doesn't Elevate me do the same thing as "Run as administrator". Or does it hook to the Secure Desktop & presses that "OK" button?

  • +1, Yes this program does eliminate the need to press OK on the secure desktop. But I had a question, this program allows you to bypass UAC Prompt via using task scheduler. Does Task scheduler allow interactive programs..i.e. one which show a UI to the user?

  • Yes task scheduler can run programs interactively.

  • You don't really need elevator, you could just create the scheduled task with "run with highest privilege" checked... And instead of using a right click, you could use a shortcut like: schtasks /run /TN "Your Task"

    Both options work, although Elevate makes it rather painless.

There is a new free tool called LOGINstall which you can use to create UAC exception lists.

It was designed to install software as a simple user (the admin decides which commands can be executed). However you can install this tool complete on your local system and define your own commands/executables.

LOGINstall is a tool helping unprivileged users to execute administrative commands which have been predefined by the network administrator. These can be interactive setups or configuration procedures that are started in the user logon script. Even older applications - from the time before Windows 7 - often only can be performed in the administrative context. When starting such an application the unprivileged user has to specify an administrative user name and a password via the User Account Control (UAC).


Additional information; To elevate without prompt follow the steps below.

Steps to follow:

  1. Click Start and in the instance search type Local Security Policy and as it appears in the search result, press Enter to run it, note: UAC will prompt. So pass the UAC prompt correctly. (Note: You can also press Win + R and when the Run dialog appears type: secpol.msc and press Enter).
  2. Now expand the Local Policies tree, and click on the Security Options.
  3. On the right-side a list of security settings will appear, search for "User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode".
  4. Right-click on it and choose Properties a dialog will appear.
  5. In the middle of the dialog, you'll see a combo box with the default value = "Prompt for consent for non-Windows binaries".
  6. Click on that comboBox and choose "Elevate without prompting", click Apply and OK (Note: This does NOT require a PC reboot).
  7. Double click on the program to verify if it works, but, trust me this will work.

And please look at these 7 ways too

I hope this information was helpful...
