How do I mark an application to always require a full administrator access token?

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Some applications, such as internal line-of-business applications or non-Microsoft products, may require the full administrator access token to perform some of their functions or tasks, but the applications are not identified by the developer or publisher as administrator applications. In this case, you can use the following procedure to mark an application so that the operating system always prompts for a full administrator access token.

You cannot mark an application to bypass the User Account Control (UAC) message.

To perform this procedure, you must be logged on as a local administrator or provide the credentials of a member of the local Administrators group.

To mark an application to always require a full administrator access token
  1. Right-click the application that may require a full administrator access token but has not been marked as such.

  2. Click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab.

  3. In the Privilege Level section, click Run this program as an administrator, and then click OK.
