Re: How to give admin rights to a specific Software
An easier way is to figure out what specific access to files or registry that the HTC app requires (at least in XP/2003, there's no additional security above ACLs, so that's all you need to do), and allow that access to those areas for that user only. That way the user is a little less secure and a little more of an admin, but the process isn't running with administrative rights. This would definitely NOT be the way to handle this in Win7 or Vista (and technically any app that *requires* admin rights to work properly is already a piece of crap in 2011), but unfortunately XP systems still require this from time to time.
