Disable UAC for single application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    We have a Group of about 15 users in an AD, and almost all of them are running a specific economic-application.
    The application does not require UAC to start, but every now and then the server sends out an update.

    When the update is installed, the local computers asks through UAC for admin login.
    Our users are not local admins (and should not be).

    Is there any way through GPO to allow that single application to run "without" the UAC popup?
    Thank you!

    No one, that you can build. There is a technic called "auto elevation",
    but thats only an option for Microsoft executables, that are signed with
    a specific certificate.
    UAC is not "application aware". Thats the reason, why you should have a
    software deployment solution.
    The bigger the company the more they have a tool to handle updates, the
    smaller the company the more it´s you clicking the buttons.
