Running a specific app with admin privileges RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does Windows 10 have a feature where you can designate an application to run with admin privileges? We have a client with 147 users that run an app that has monthly updates. These updates require Admin rights because they're installing the VC_Update.exe file.

    Normally the app runs fine without admin privileges but these unannounced updates require us to login to 147 machines to do the update.

    Poor coding aside (we cannot fix what the vendor has done with their app) is there a utility that will allow us to elevate the application's run rights so the user does not have to worry about this and our IT team does not get gray hairs having to deal with this monthly nightmare?
