Windows 7: Run A Program With Administrative Privileges

Older programs sometimes require administrative privileges in order to run properly. To enable this feature follow the instructions below:

  • Right-click the program's shortcut, select Properties.
  • Press the Advanced button.
  • In the Advanced Properties dialog box, check the box "Run as administrator"
  • Press the OK button

Now when you double-click the the shortcut to launch the program, it will automatically run as administrator.

Note: If the UAC feature is enabled you will be prompted for your administrative credentials.
