    You could look at a group policy (assuming you are in a domain) to remove user rights from the local admins group -- just checking and not sure which right is needed, so may not be possible.

    Alternatively how about restricting write permissions on the file system?
    [EDIT] May also be possible through software restriction policies: http://forums.techarena.in/active-directory/1394777.htm[/EDIT]

    Why does the app require admin permissions to run -- can you get the authors to modify it?

        Sounds as if you have now resolved the issue. In order for an application to run with the required priveleges without giving local administrator priveleges, can be achieved using the Application Compatibility Toolkit.

        You can create a shim in ACT. When you review the below article, ensure that you also read through to the end, as the start appears irrelevant to your issue.
